Crossing Black Angus and Polled Hereford cattle produces a calf which has a solid black body and a white face, and which is called a Black Baldy.
A 2009 study found that, "Using Hereford bulls on Angus-based cows will give producers advantages in profitability, cash flow, herd size, and retained female fertility and longevity according to a recently completed study at Circle A Angus Ranch. In fact, when the data were further analyzed for economic emphasis, the results showed an advantage of $514 net per cow over a period of 10 years."
