Crown Prince 920 1/2
National Beefmaster Bull Championship
2006 Grand Champion
2007 SR. Reserve Champion
Needless to say, the friends that thought we were crazy last year to haul a SR bull to Tunica, thought we had lost our minds when we told them we were going to enter Crown Prince again, this time almost eight! We decided the worst that could happen is he would be beaten by a younger bull, and sure enough, Thunder Valley had some tremendous young bulls that took Grand Champion, and Reserve Grand Champion. We can live with that.
We did however, win our class, and Crown Prince, moving a littler slower down the aisle this year, was SR. Reserve Champion! Several people told us they were glad we brought him because he actually looked better in person!
2009 Wild Oaks is now proud to introduce possibly the
strongest breeding red polled bull available in the breed today . .
(Soul Man x HF Shady Lady)
2009 Reserve SR. Champion
National Beefmaster Bull ChampionshipSeveral people have told us they think Advantage is one of the most exciting young bulls in the breed today! He has excellent bone, testicular development, great spring of rib and natural expression of muscle. I think you'll appreciate the strength of his top line and his overall balance. We expect Advantage to become one of the premier polled bulls of our breed. His dam, Homestead's Shady Lady (293 cow family) has been a tremendous donor for us, and we've retained three full sisters in the herd. We named him Advantage, because we think he'll AD whatever you need to your herd! There are a number of clean polled Black Beefmaster Bulls, but we've all been waiting for a RED POLLED bull of this quality. We pulled him out of the bull pasture three months before the futurity. He's never been halter broke, but after a week he was gentle enough in a pen to be brushed by hand. Wild Oaks is flushing our top donors to this young bull, and his calves are extremely consistent in phenotype. You can expect strong top lines, deep muscle, great neck extension and smooth shoulders on his calves. He's throwing red calves out of red cows, and black calves out of black cows. It doesn't get any better than that!
At Wild Oaks, we believe truly believe that Beefmaster cattle are the ultimate breed for commercial cattlemen. Historically high pricing of Beefmaster semen has limited the access of commercial breeder to the breed's top bulls. The same pricing has assured those bulls were only put on the tops cows. We used Advantage straight across our herd, and we encourage you to do the same!
To show our commitment in promoting the breed, we are offering semen out of Advantage at the commercial rate of $25 per straw.
Here's some of his calves, all polled, we think he works! You be the judge!

CF Sugar Dadee 1/2 (Capt. Sugar x Ava (Oasis Flushmate) 16 mos.
Last June we went to the Cottage Farm Southern Tradition XI sale specifically to purchase this bull. At 13 months, he showed the structural traits we were looking for, in a very strong genetic package. Fortunately others that day were looking for old bulls. We've patiently developed this young bull while breeding him to the cream of our heifer crop, and managed to get one live cover donor flush out of Piggy Too. It's taken us four years to find a bull with the inner stifle thickness this young bull shows. We think you'll agree this young bull is showing all the attributes of a tremendous herd sire. He has a flawless top line, beautiful shoulders and a tight sheath structure. Sugar Dadee is a genetic sibling to the great Sugar Britches, whom we've flushed to. We're confident in the quality of calves this young bull is going to bring to the breed.
Look for him on display at the CSBBA Sale and Convention May 7th, in Shawnee, OK. When we had him on display in San Antonio at the National Convention Sale, several people told us he was the best bull in the barn!
Semen $100 per straw, no minimums

We're breeding the cattle you're looking for . . .
(8/5 Soul Man x Lady Tiger)
After having a tremendous Ace in the Hole bull calf, we thought this young cow deserved a try as a donor. A flush mate to my favorite donor, 13/5 Kathryn Hepburn, Sophie was Jim William's second favorite heifer in the Cream of the Crop Heifer futurity. Last fall she was flushed to Cottage Farm's Sugar Britches (Captain Sugar x Oasis). A light dose of FSH yielded 42 embryos, 32 transferable. We've got a dozen calves on the ground, here's a few that will step up any program . .

Wild Oaks is currently running a flushmate, a black and polled bull, WO 553-0 on a set of Beefmaster heifers. We don't know if he's the only black polled Sugar Britches bull, but we do know he's possibly the best!

At Wild Oaks our show heifers start at $1000 and up, depending on breeding and quality. They are out of tremendous cows and represent the cutting edge genetics in the breed, with a little special something. Once their show career is over, they progeny will be highly marketable, not because of their success on the show circuit, but because they are bred to be the top females in the breed. Most would be donors in their own right. We have a very aggressive flush schedule, and have calves born every two months. We have the heifer you're looking for. Call for available ages.

Cottage Farms Vanity Fair
I just can't express what an impact this we think Vanity Fair is going to make to the Wild Oaks Farms program and the Beefmaster breed, but here's her natural Soul Man calf, at four months to give you an idea. We think Vanity Fair is the epitome of what a Beefmaster cow should be, and I think you'll agree she is one of the most beautiful donors in the Beefmaster breed.
Cottage Farms sold three Vanity Fair heifers for a total of $26,000 at their Production Sale in July. Paul Hill purchased a black bred heifer, Ted Cain an open red heifer, and Davin Vaughn & Paul Castleman a black open heifer. We wish them all tremendous luck with females that we think will be trend setters for the Beefmaster Breed!
Toby and I especially want to thank Cottage Farms for using such a tremendous cow for their lead sale offering. We realize what a sacrifice it is to lose a female of this quality from the herd.

Her bulls are going to be some of the cleanest Black Beefmaster Bulls in the Breed, there's two of them on the right at weaning. We love them, but we just can't figure out which one we like best . . . . actually, that seems to be everyone's problem!

Building Success on Success
3 Yr old Polled, Cottage Farms Herd Sire for Sale
CF 134, Time Bandit 1/3 $4,500.00 (SOLD) (Jackpot x Vanna II) DOB: 9/3/07 We purchased this strong young herd sire two years ago at the Cottage Farms sale, and have used him on several sets of cattle. Because of our active embryo program, we are simply not using him to his full advantage and have decided to sell him. We've recently featured him in our ad in Beefmaster Cattleman. His half sister, Vanity Fair, our lead donor, is out of Vanna II also. We know this young bull will contribute great volume, bone and spring of rib to any herd! Polled and Black is just a bonus!
