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!

SHOWMAN'S CHOICE SALE



"DON'T MISS THIS SET OF CALVES!"

This will no doubt be the strongest set of calves ever offered in The Showman's Choice Sale!  The Mittag Show Cattle offering is easily the best set we have ever had and after talking to Ky last night, Stierwalts feel this year is their best set of calves that they have ever raised!

Watch for updates all summer!
