Not a bad cow...

Post by holm25 » Mon Jan 20, 2020 10:13 pm

Picked this registered Simmental heifer up from a guy down the road last fall. She was bat crap crazy.. Got a good deal on her due to her “spirit”. Now after calving I’m pretty darn happy with her. She has chilled right out. She’s not the best cow we have in the pasture but I like her. Has a really nice udder. Just got emptied out before picture so doesn’t look like much...

If treated well. Even some of the most ill temperament will chill.

We have already caught the calf. We can go in and scratch on the calf and she just stands there watching. Don’t quit trust her (it’s always the ones you least expect that get you) but she is pretty good.
