Cow Herd

Today, the Wise cow herd consists of 120 head of black and red purebred and high percentage Maines that are calved from late February to early April. The nucleus of the cow herd has always been bred to Maine bulls in order to retain the higher-percentage purebreds. 

The breeding philosophy has stayed constant throughout the years as the Wises carefully choose the genetic lineage for their calving program. The naming of their females within cow families makes tracing lineage simple. The breeding program has been fine-tuned to meet the demands of purebred and commercial customers. The Wises breed for easy fleshing cattle with moderate frame size, ease of calving and longevity.
