- Do you want quieter calves?
- Do you want easy calving?
- Do you need in increase your weight for age in vealers?
- Want to retain the colour of your herd?
The answer is simple Maine-Anjou!
The Maine-Anjou breed is naturally quiet and this temperament trait is passed onto their calves. Through careful selection Maine-Anjou Beef Australia members have been breeding easy calving Maine-Anjou cattle while maintaining excellent weight for age. Generally when a red & white Maine-Anjou bull is utilised over – for example a black Angus, the calf will in most cases inherit the mother’s coat colouring and be black.
7-10 day old calves, with birthweights of 25kg – 32kg all born unassisted by Maine Park Black Moocha a 1300kg+ bull, calves out of Angus cows at Kilmore Park.
