When you can't get a heifer calf.................
I have had five Jersey calves born in the last two years and they have all been bulls! Those are not very good odds.
I have a friend that lives close who also has a family cow and she had a heifer calf. The cow is a beautiful 1/2 Jersey and 1/2 Dutch Belted, named Cookie. She has a nice udder and teats and is a great family cow. Cookie had a nice little 3/4 Jersey calf two months ago.
My friend brought Cookie and the baby over for a couple of days to work on getting Cookie bred by my miniature Jersey bull. Before Cookie went home this evening, we had worked out a deal and the heifer calf has a new home with us.
