Crooked Post Stockman with Waukaru 12H Melita Rose
Embryos from this breeding pair are currently available
Sire - Crooked Post Stockman 4Z
Registration (Canadian) M476682
Crooked Post Stockman was sired by Belmore Jackaroo, the renowned Australian bull. Stockman’s dam is from the Red Rose line at Crooked Post, which is a strong proven maternal line. Stockman has now been used extensively at Crooked Post, and if ever a bull placed his stamp on his calves he has, certainly from what I have seen on my visits. Stockman is a trait leader for CED (Calving Ease Direct) and EPD, British Maternal Index as defined by the American Shorthorn Association. He in my eyes is just the perfect bull both in eye appeal and proven breed traits. Crooked Post retained the large part of his 2016 daughters to enlarge their breeding plans. We have numerous embryos available sired by Stockman along with semen from his Canadian sons Crooked Post Drover and DF Super Mario, see our semen section for details. We have retained a small group of heifers from a Stockman son (Wenmar Major), an embryo by Waukaru 12 Melita Rose 5021.
Dam - Waukaru 12H Melita Rose 5021
Registration (Canadian) 20970
Melita Rose is a daughter of the great Crooked Post Boston Bodacious, and is the dam of Waukaru Patent who has proved the ability to transmit superior performance into his progeny. His steers have tested as the most profitable within a controlled trail with a 100% USDA choice quality grade. His daughters are powerful cows that are surpassing expectations for maternal traits. I saw Melita Rose in late 2016 as a ten year old cow, she is a long deep bodied cow with good feet and legs and did not look her age. We used a Melita Rose son (Wenmar Major) selectively in our herd in 2019 and then across the whole herd in 2020, the resulting calves were very good and all the heifers have been retained for future herd development.
This breeding almost guarantees results, certainly on paper. We have used this breeding ourselves, from two embryos we produced a new herd sire (Wenmar Major) and a lovely heifer who will be the start of a new female line for us. This is the last chance to use these genetics as we are down to our last two embryos, and Melita Rose is no longer with us.
