Breeding Season Update

For all those that are on the fence about using Montego Bay on heifers, we are making a mindful effort to get plenty of yearling heifers and first calf heifers bred to him this spring.  We are confident that he will have moderate size calves, but for those of you that are cautious (and should be), we will have a great sampling this fall and next spring to prove either way.  Stay tuned for the calving reports.  Anybody looking at Triple X should know that he is tried and true calving ease, and can be used on heifers confidently.  Triple X is a full brother to Montego Bay's dam.

Are you ready for breeding season?

It is that time of year when we have pastures full of brand new babies, and time to pick which sires to use for this years breeding season.  Make sure to include a few straws of ZNT Triple X and ZNT Montego Bay when selecting your sires.

Triple X is a proven easy calving 3/4 Maine sire.  He is TH and PHA free and will add growth, maternal, and style to your common made cows and heifers.

Montego Bay is the perfect balance of muscle, maternal genetics, and eye appeal.  His 74# birth weight, and going back to both Ali and Hardcore, make him likely to become a dominate polled, purebred Maine easy calving sire.
