His sire, Folkslee Herald, is a purebred homozygous bull (5th cross). In fact, Herald is the first homozygous polled bull in the world.

Champion Bazadais Exhibit, 2015 Royal Queensland Show
In my experience, I have observed that crossbred animals with an ear structure like young Goldy here, generally have a quieter temperament than their peers. This young bull has an excellent sheath structure and an all-around softeness that is exactly the kind of bull we look for in our cross breeding operation. He will pass on both the carcase yield and eating quality characteristics which drive the bottom line in commercial beef production.
Cross bred bulls like Goldy, when crossed with our full blood Bazadais cows, will give our cattle more hardiness, improved fat coverage and develop the infusion of stronger polled genetics in our herd.
