Mittag Alias Donor

We are fortunate enough to have a real good bank of Mittag Alias embryos in the tank, therefore we decided to breed her this year and let her have a natural calf again next year.  After seeing the traits of the Black Power Play calves this year we have decided to breed her Black Power Play.  The Mittag Alias Donor puts a beautiful profile and huge foot in her calves...and so does Black Power Play.  This mating should produce huge footed, sound, attractive yet stout offspring.

Here is a sample of some of our Black power Play calves this year....

A "GREEN STUFF" Front Leg!

"GREEN STUFF" WORKS!
