I purchased a small herd of 2 year old bred Blonde heifers last year. They all calved in January and not one prolasped or had any trouble birthing. I was very impressed with the results. I also have a bull that I am showing in the 4-H and he is very gentle. Some of the heifers I purchased are so gentle that you can walk right up to them in a field and they will not move. I am very impressed with the Blonde Association and with the breed. I like the muscling characteristics and the length. I just wanted to share my success with the breed with the board. I hope that more people would decide to purchase Blonde's in the future.
