The basis of our cow herd is to bring back the genetics of the family cow that was able to provide an entire neighborhood with milk, cream, yogurt and cheese on grass alone.
Domino is a 2 year old A2A2half New Zealand Friesian and half Jersey. She freshened at 5.5 gallons a day again on organic alfalfa hay, grass and grass/alfalfa pellets. These two cows are both under 1,000lbs and full grown. The Friesian is not the same as the US Holstein cow.
Rosebud is a purebred Milking Shorthorn. She is for sale. She has always been thin and while bright eyed and healthy; we have decided not to breed to her or keep any calves. She prefers to be alone, and will make a good family milk cow but I would suggest cross breeding program.
Ethel is 15 months in this photo, she is showing an udder although only a month bred. She is 1/4 Dexter and 3/4 Jersey. Small and perhaps mini is size, she will make a great family milk cow! Halter broke, gentle and will come every time we call her. She is for sale for $2,500 and due 2-2-16. We will keep her heifer calf. She is bred to Success; an A2A2 Jersey bull.
