My first two calves hit the ground. Compared to my belties they’re a little longer legged, with a bit more ear. The Wagyu bull is breaking up the belt but not taking it away. Calves came unassisted and healthy, so off to a good start.

I don't know if Kimonos come with belts.
Maybe he'll convert them from belted to wearing suspenders. :)

If you have great cows, you can breed them to a billy goat and should have decent calves. From what I have seen before, you have some nice cows.

Early spring pics. His first calf will head to the butcher in about 12 months.

Neighbor has about 120 Wagyu cows. He does a lot of embryo transplanting etc. Ships bulls and heifer all over the country. Your bull looks about like the ones he has. I helped wean and work the fall calves on Monday. Those fall calving cows are coming to my place in a couple days. They will stay up on the range land here until mid July.

My humble opinion of Wagyu cows is they are ugly and stupid. But the neighbor is making money on them so who is to argue.

My end goal is really good freezer beef for my family plus a friend or two. I'll be able to compare a full Beltie being butchered in September, to a cross being butchered next spring. I'll agree, they aren't the greatest looking cattle, but this guy has been nothing but a gentleman for me and my friend, and he's getting the job done.
