You need to have him eat as much as possible every day. An April 2019 born calf can make it easily enough by July 2020 but it needs to do all he can do every day.

No one really knows how the females will be yet. Not old enough to prove anything concrete.

I drive by Shuey's cattle several times a week and they are very good.
Another outfit that have good cattle is Silver Creek out of Colorado.

Link to a Wagyu breeding/feeding program. Paying premiums for Wagyu X calves.

MVP's sire was penned right beside him and he is a very good bull but I liked MVP quite a bit more. Deep soft sided bull.

I saw ML MVP at Nichols a short while ago and was really impressed. My thought was if the Maine Anjou breed wants to be relative in the real world this bull needs to be used. I haven't studied his numbers at all as far as being heifer safe. link to the bull below.


If you want good dispositions and cows that will milk, I'd leave Walks Alone out of the equation for sure. JMO
Of the white SH bulls listed, I like TM Gus. I've seen him and have always liked him. The Jazz SH cattle that I have been around don't seem to have enough grow to them although they are popular. Again just my 2 cents worth.

The size of calf that you are talking about really doesn't need any hay but if you take all of his hay away from him you'll have to build roughage into his diet. Do you have a nutrition expert to visit with. Commonly used ingredients used in a ration are whole oats, cotton seed hulls, or beet pulp shreds depending on your area and availability. All of the custom feedlots feed requirements in the form of a total ration and rations change accordingly as the cattle go through the different feeding phases.

This has worked well for me. heat detect and breed for seven days, on day 8 shoot with estrumate, heat detect and breed off of the observed heats, usually 48 to 72 hours later. it gets most of them and lowers the times through the chute and costs of drugs.

I saw Primo Monday. He should throw hair. He has a lot of hair on himself especially for the time of year it is. Style is a great bull too.

I think that you should contact both of those outfits if you really want to know what they have. VC may chime in on this one. He goes through at least one of the 2 outfits that you have listed.

I have not used Big Timber but Wide Range has been my go to bull the last couple of years and I thought my best over sire last year. Both sexes of calves are good solid type cattle. I was surprised this spring at some of the BWs but nothing was safe for me this year so I don't know exactly what to think about that. Calves are very well balanced, he makes every cow better IMO. He can throw some of the brownish tint color instead of coal black. I always have some WR in my tank for the cow that I don't know what to throw at her!!  ;) ;D
