We all know that there is both a real and perceived calving ease problem within our great breed of cattle. To that end, we have been trying to create cattle with more manageable birth weights and larger pelvic areas without sacrificing any of the breeds gains in muscularity and carcass efficiency. Greater documentation within our herd and genetic base has begun to develop more consistency and basic knowledge of how our cattle are going to respond in their environment. However, we still needed that one extra step to not only expand on these traits, but to present name recognition and validity to the unmatched importance of calving ease and calf mortality. What better way to achieve all these goals in one package than to purchase Prestige 0665 from Loving Farms. The Loving name ensures generations of cattle bred for real world practicality and function while the Proud Jazz lineage is industry accepted as a high quality Shorthorn calving ease option.

Chosen is the Contender son we have selected to use here.  He is a great structured bull with a big hoof and ideal flexibility.  His flat shoulder, moderate size and genetic make-up have him in service to almost all of our yearling heifers.  His mother, Alicia 4105, is the matriarch of one of our five foundational families.  As of the fall of 2013, she has had 7 calves with an calving interval of 363 days, average birth weight of 81.4 lbs., average calving ease score of 1, and average 205 day weight of 622.

Contender has been the centerpiece of our breeding program over the last few years and will remain so due to his daughters’ ability to maintain flesh, milk, and produce marketable offspring. He is also the first sire used here that we actually hope for sons. His bull calves are widely accepted for their masculinity, rugged construction, and profitable carcass traits. We will continue to feature Contender through AI and ET work and utilize his sons to further propagate his genetic ability. His genetics will only be available through his offspring. Semen is not for sale due to his death.

One of the first sons of Contender, Frazier continues  to make a lasting impact on our herd's ability to produce moderate, easy fleshing cattle with improved carcass quality.  Although deceased, his service continues through AI and through sons in order to build on increased IMF, earlier maturity patterns, and lower input costs.  Average birth weight on 59 calves has been 81.2 lbs. with an average calving ease score of 1.15.   16 of his daughters scanned 5.03% IMF at 410 days.
