It's (another) Boy!


My Jersey heifer bred to my mini Jersey bull Peanut calved this morning. She made it look so easy and looks like she is going to be a great mom. Of course, we got another bull calf. We have had calves from three different bulls and have a total of 15 bull calves and 5 heifers for the last three years with our Jersey and Jersey cross calves.

Congrats on a healthy calf! Tammy the trick to getting more heifers is to breed to a beef bull. It works for me EVERY time. If I want replacement heifers and breed Jersey, I almost always get bulls.
