ROMAGNOLA and BLACK ANGUS Crosses
A Little About the ROMAGNOLA Breed and their meat.
The Romagnola Beef Cattle are a cattle breed that has commercial appeal to the Cattle Industry. Romagnola Cattle offer the commercial cattleman ease of calving, earlier growth, good early weight gains and mostly muscle. Romagnola seed stock bulls are being used on terminal cross feeder cattle for better feedlot gains with more muscle and less fat (fat thickness of 0.35 in) at slaughter. Typical feedlot gains are 3.1 lbs/day (no implants), yielding 64.8% with a typical ribeye of 14.3 in2 and a rib/cwt of 1.68. These crosses are typically bringing the producer a premium of $85 over regional cash prices. At slaughter, 4% grade premium, 89 % of carcasses typically grade choice and the remaining 7% grades select.
ROMANGNOLA and BLACK ANGUS Crossed on Red and Black cows
I have always loved the Romangnola cattle and I have just started up a small herd with a Romangnola registered bull and some Black and Red Angus cows/heifers, I have now sold my Reg. Romagnola bull as I had kept so many of his heifers. I now have two black angus bulls running with them, in 2009 on. I have also kept back a BLACK polled son of “Bullwinkle”
We just call him “BULLWINKLE” named by Daina, a friend of mine.
I have always just loved the PERFECT “heart” on “Queens” left thigh.
