At Riversdale calving takes place all year round. This is Elise, a daughter of Isla, who was born in March 2019. She is 75% Wagyu, 25% Aberdeen Angus. Although Wagyu cattle are black, the colour of the calves varies from nearly blonde to jet black, but by the age of about 6 months, all are black or very dark brown, often with some red guard hairs which can give them a ginger appearance in the sun.
