Jesse James is as tough an animal as you could get. His Mum died when he was 5 days old and he found himself a new mother in the herd and still came to the scales as one of the highest weight gaining calves of his drop. We decided that his toughness could only be an asset to our herd.
We have used him successfully as a heifer bull for 2 years now and he is extremely fertile, achieving 100% fertility with 45 heifers last season.
His daughters have scanned extremely well, showing excellent marbling levels. Feedback on his steers from the Shorthorn Thousand Guineas intake has also verified Jesse James's carcase strengths.
Jesse James has excellent structure and temperament and his progeny show the vitality of those of his legendary grandfather, The Grove Kookaburra. Not only is his marbling in the top 1% of the breed but his progeny display beed leading marbling. His daughter, Toogimbie Dainty M37 is equal second for Marbling on IGS for all Herd Book females and first for 2016 females. And there are many more examples.
