This little gal, Hope, arrived the morning 12/31/07. She was dry and had her first meal before I got to the barn at 7am. Her dam is an Angus/Jersey cross. Her sire is a Genex AI Red Angus bull. I love this little calf. :0) I couldn't be more pleased with the way she is growing.
I milk her Mom everyday and get about 30 qts. She's a nice tempered old gal and throws beautiful calves. I have her heifer from last year, a 3/4 jersey. The cow passes her disposition on to her calves. Both heifers are very friendly and we are planning to keep them both to enlarge our herd. I figure "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" so I have had this cow and a nice Hereford heifer we raised bred to the same bull. I'm hoping for two heifer calves around 12/7/08!
