Waldo's consignment of three bucks was also among the top-performing in the test. His bucks grew especially well during the last 4 weeks of the test.

Waldo has participated in the test since 2011. In 2012, he had one of the most parasite resistant bucks in the test. It qualified for the sale and sold to a farm in West Virginia.

Waldo's farm is located in Quantico, Maryland, on the Lower Easter Shore.
