Maine Calving Ease Sires

The cattle industry is at a crossroads and the Maine Anjou breed specifically.  We (ZNT Cattle) have strived for years to produce Maine Anjou cattle with moderate birth weights, superior maternal characteristics, and free of genetic defects yet are still able to compete in the show ring and on the rail.  We feel Montego Bay and Triple X are the culmination of our herd direction.

Montego Bay's first calf crop has exceeded our expectations with his ability to produce low birth weights and calving ease without compromising muscle and style.  He has consistently stamped his calves with a look and hair that will catch your eye.  Calves have been averaging in the 60-70 pound range out of heifers and 70-80 pound range out of cows. Blood lines and the structural correctness in the calves tell us that his females should go on to make excellent replacement females and bull calves should be marketable as either bulls or show steers.  Our observations are that he is a perfect match for medium to large framed heifers and cows.  More information about Montego Bay {here} and click {here} for past blogs and pictures of calves.

Triple X's true value is now being realized as heifers out of him enter production themselves.  He has proven himself as a heifer-safe sire that provides that extra performance and style.  Offspring have been very competitive in the show ring and are now just as competitive in the pasture as cows.  Birth weights have been in the 60-80 pound range but he provides a smooth shoulder that makes him not just a low birth weight bull, but provides true calving ease.  He is a great match for small to medium framed cattle and cattle that need that extra look.  More information about Triple X can be found {here} and click {here} for past blogs related to Triple X.

WCYF Montego Bay Heifer Judge's Comments

Nothing feels better than to hear a judge compliment a calf like the judge at the 2014 Wise County Youth Fair judge complimenting this Montego Bay x Double Bred EXT heifer as she wins her class.  Congratulations to Wesley Ruddick and Donna Martin for raising this heifer and your confidence in the ZNT program.

"Wins this class by a good stretch.  I think this is a good kind of cattle right there -  in the way that she's made: fault-free, she's sound, she's practical, she's deep-bodied, she's muscular, she's stylish."

Fresh Weaned Montego Bay Steers

Just clipped out just a couple of fall prospect calves that Wesley Ruddick had born this year out of Montego Bay.  Calves have been weaned right at two weeks, and are coming on like crazy. So happy to see on of our partners having such great success with their ZNT genetics.

As quoted by one of the breeders using Montego Bay for natural service, "No matter what type or quality of cow you breed Montego Bay to, the calf will be better than the dam".

Semen available on Montego Bay from SEK Genetics, Cattle Visions, Bull Barn Genetics, or directly from ZNT Cattle Co. and its Montego Bay shareholders.
