  Wild Oaks Farms, Volume Buyers
September 10, 2005

     This was my first time to experience the industry famous hospitality of Trent and Connie Cromer, at their farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside Ararat, VA. I inadvertently took the "long way to get there", but who can blame me for taking in the incredible views instead of reading road signs! The Cromer's, a previous BBU Breeder of the Year,  know how to pick quality. Their sale included  exceptional bull offerings, 30 pairs and 3N1's, tremendous heifers, and a dozen proven donors from some of the most coveted bloodlines in the breed. I know Trent would want to thank his consultant Mike Green, and farm manager Doyle Mosley for their part in making this sale such a tremendous success. The sale grossed a over $336,500.00 with an average of $5022.00 on 67 lots! 3G Sales and Services had all of the consultants working hard!

     Wild Oaks Farms was fortunate to purchase the top female lot, 76/0, an own daughter of Jungle Red**, out of King Cotton**. Purchased as an embryo from Cottage Farms in 1999, this five year old female is the youngest registered daughter of the Jungle Red. She was exactly the type of cornerstone female we had hoped to find for our donor program.

The performance of Jungle Red's progeny is legendary, and we're particularly excited to be able to pair that with the top genetics of today. It is our intent to offer a limited number of select, unique breedings from this great cow.  We considered her Blizzard heifer calf a bonus, and will  be breeding the heifer this spring. It might be a good time to try out some of the "Ace in the Hole" (Black Jack 21 x Sugar Pie) semen we picked up. He's a pretty powerful young bull, and you know Trent's track record with bulls!

      Wild Oaks also took home a Blizzard son, 38/3, out of Lady Desperado, Miss Beefmaster America 1999. That makes two Miss Beefmaster America sons we have on the farm. The Black Heifer, Miss Beefmaster America, 2003, just had a remarkable red bull calf out of our Revelation Bull! (Desperado x Lady LeAnne x 10/0). Looks like this is going to be an incredible year!
