Detailed Information Page for Steer Red-44 (15C)

Steer 15C was born at Whitesell Farms Wagyu on 4-Jun-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 first generation F1 WagyuX steer produced in our most classic breeding pattern; that being the crossing of a premier Wagyu bull, known for marbling and tenderness over a commercial Brangus cow.

The sire of 15C is a bull we have used for many years with proven results; Bar R Sanjiro 4P. This bull has great carcass data trials, placing as the Number 3 marbling bull in 2009. His genetic tests are also excellent with a tenderness score of 7 and the preferred fat profile, SCD: AA. In our own experience, he consistently produces amazing results when used with our commercial herd. For more information on this bull, you can follow this link.

The dam of 15C is one of our favorite cows on the farm with a great track record of raising great calves. This is her first steer, 15C, grading out in our top 10% of F1 steers. You can find more information on her, as well as 15C siblings, by following this link to her record in our listing of herd cows.

15C 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 530 lbs. At weaning, he transitioned to our "Grower Pasture" where he spent the next year 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 739 lbs with a frame score of 5.6. These stats put him in the upper echelon of his contemporaries for growth.

At 18 months of age, 15C transitioned to our "Finishing Pasture" at a massive weight of 975 lbs. For five months over the winter and spring of 2016, 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 2.5 lbs per day to finish at 1350 lbs live weight. A few more details can be found on our Available Supply page at this link.

15C was harvested on 23-May-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 937 lbs. The carcass aged for 16 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.
