What do yall think? Is this 100% jersey or a cross???? Shes a very good mama and let's any calf nurse anytime hers or not I've seen 2 on her at the same time and neither of them was hers. Just kinda curious as to what exactly she might be!?
Glad you found us!Thats a good break down lots of interesting info! Thanks!
Had a lot of local guys tell me I messed up buying this cow because she's a jersey and she's going to raise small calves and off colored calves but I've had 2 calves from her first from registered polled herf bull = herf marked heifer she weighed 416 lbs when weaned at a touch over 6 months. And now she has a nice bull calf from my young bull that's 3 months old and dwarfs every other calf I have and 2 are a month older (different sires)!
I wanna ad that this site is amazing! I could talk about cows all day long it's just finding someone to talk to that knows and cares about the topic!!!!
That color calf you would have to almost give away here.Here's another one of my mystery cows!
There is not much of a market for back forty cows it’s endless for front pasture bovines.Marketing!
If that's a heifer, she will do well on various sites designed to reach folks looking for just such an animal. Gotta be prepared to sit on em a lil while tho.
Lots of folks love colorful animals.
Bet sales of black paint are off the charts in your corner of the world.That color calf you would have to almost give away here.
Margins are super tight on grade calves, there is no way that calf could cover the dams inputs for a year.
Not being mean it’s just fact, you’re not maximizing your returns while raising a welfare cattle someone to enjoy.
