The secret is finally out why Wild Oaks Farms has been purchasing so many elite Beefmaster cows this last year!

     We've been selectively purchasing unique individuals to compliment what we thought was one of the best Beefmaster Bulls in the breed, our Sr. Herd Sire Crown Prince 920. February 25th, in Tunica, MS, at the SEBBA Dixie National Bull Futurity, three of the top cattle judges in the industry confirmed our suspicions, and Crown Prince 920 was named the Grand Champion Beefmaster Bull at the National Bull Futurity, at almost seven years of age! In a futurity dominated by the athleticism of young bulls, Crown Prince joined the ranks of Black Jack 21, Soul Man & Navasota, but as a mature bull, right out of the breeding pasture!

      The judges were in unanimous agreement, commenting that they judged from the ground up, looking for good feet and legs to insure longevity. They stated their thought when he came in the ring was, "That's the Man!" As a Senior Bull almost seven, he was exceptionally strong  on his legs and feet,  showed structural correctness, tremendous breed character,  muscle mass, and was quoted to have "the best top there is". Their other comment was "this bull is going to make a pretty good mark on the breed".

     What they didn't know was that Crown Prince had been running with 43 open cows, on 80 acres, for two months, up until two weeks before the show! Crown Prince 920 is a bull making a tremendous contribution to the Wild Oaks breeding program, and the Beefmaster breed.

     We knew he was exceptional when we bought him as a 4 year old, but also knew it was almost impossible to promote an untested Sr. bull. Testing him in the field, we used him not only on our donors and AI cows, but on 30 of our upgrade cows. When we realized that the calves were so uniform in pattern that it was hard to tell the ET calves from the upgrade calves, we started buying some of the elite cows and heifers in the breed. We're confident Crown Prince 920 is one of the few Beefmaster Bulls that can work with your entire herd, he has with ours!
