Attention cattle ranchers! Tired of working and working and not getting ahead? Beef up your herd with a Piedmontese bull!!
16 month old fullblood Piedmontese bull. Can be registered at your cost (approximately 100 to register). Piedmontese are a breed from Italy that carry the so-called "double-muscling gene." They carry a myostatin mutation that forgets to signal the muscle to stop growing. Instead of converting excess feed to fat, the Piedmontese convert it to muscle. The gene also adds a significant amount of tenderness to the meat. On "shear force" tests, Piedmontese was higher in tenderness than any beef raised in the United States; even higher than Angus. This bull has two copies of the gene, so one copy is guaranteed to be passed to the calf from any cow you breed him to. Even with one copy of the gene you will get double-muscling and tenderness, along with a very lean beef. Calves are born normal weight and size, but soon begin converting their feed to muscle. Because they are not carrying fat, the muscle shows a lot of definition if you are interested in 4H calves.
Because of the meat potential and low fat rates, the Piedmontese produces carcasses of considerable value, ranking in the highest categories of the EUROP-classification. The dressing out percentage of the Piedmontese veal is one of the highest in the world, reaching - and often exceeding 70% of the live weight. Furthermore the carcasses yield a considerable quantity of first quality cuts; the meat is lean, tender and tasty, with an extremely low cholesterol level (48.5 mg per 100 g of meat). If you sell beef by the halves or quarters, this bull will pay for himself in no time at all because the meat is so tender you will have repeat customers. The last picture is UNTRIMMED Piedmontese beef.
The bull is in Cushing Oklahoma. He has not been semen tested, although he has been covering cows for a few months. If you want to get him semen tested, you can make arrangements to do so.
