Your source for Wagyu beef in Cullman, Alabama!
Steer 14C was born at Whitesell Farms Wagyu on 17-Apr-15 in our fifth year of production of Wagyu influenced beef at our farm on the top of Battleground Mountain in the northwest corner of Cullman County, Alabama. He is a Fullblood (100%) Wagyu cross steer, the first that we have finished out for beef! His genetic line represents some of the best breeding in the industry. He was born on our farm from an embryo we purchased in a group as we were expanding into Fullblood Wagyu stock. He is genetically identical to his full brother WFW Ala Akiyoshi 8B, who we kept as a herd bull.
The recipient dam of 14C, WF Black Baldy W66 has been on our farm a long time and has raised many WagyuX and Fullblood calves. She has a great track record of raising solid calves. You can find more information on her, by following this link to her record in our listing of herd cows.
14C spent his first 205 days in a pasture on our farm with his mother as his main source of sustenance. At weaning on day 205, he weighed 456 lbs. At weaning, he transitioned to our "Grower Pasture" where he grew to a Yearling on good grass, with access to high quality hay and minerals, and a daily supplemental ration of between 5 and 8 lbs of 13% protein cattle feed. His yearling weight was 500 lbs with a frame score of 4.3. At 12 months, he transitioned to our "Yearling Pasture" with acres of green hills to roam, with ample hay, mineral and water resources, where he was introduced to an all-natural supplemental feed designed with enough bulk digestible material to prevent over consumption, yet stimulate growth.
At 23 months of age, 14C transitioned to our "Finishing Pasture" at an impressive weight of 1115 lbs. For five months over the spring and summer of 2017, he grazed Bermuda and rye grasses, had high-quality hay, and free choice access to a special formulation of all-natural finishing feed prepared for us by our friends at Hillsboro Feeds, west of Decatur, AL. During this period, he posted good weight gain of over 2 lbs per day to finish at 1650 lbs live weight. A few more details can be found on our Available Supply page at this link.
14C was harvested on 12-Sep-17 at H & P Meats in South Pittsburgh, TN, the nearest processing plant to our farm that caries the USDA Federally Inspected designation. His carcass weight was 1042 lbs, one of the largest we have ever produced. The carcass aged for 17 days before being processed and delivered to Boyce Restaurant Concepts, and specifically Cotton Row and Commerce Kitchen Restaurants in Huntsville, Alabama and Galley & Garden Restaurant in Birmingham, AL. It was transported in a refrigerated trailer, following USDA and Health Department guidelines. In this case, the ground product was also marketed through North Alabama Wagyu as there was more than needed by the restaurants.
This beef was available in these establishments starting on 29-Sep-17.
