Here are some pictures of a young heifer we picked up at a sale barn... my best guess is she's part jersey and part Belgiam Blue or Piemontese? Idk... what do you think?

I like your assessment regarding the breeds. Odd combo maybe...but the visuals seem to line up with those breeds. What is your plan for her?

We're gonna try to breed her to something smaller (Dexter or Aberdeen) to see if she can have a calf. I know Belgiam Blues are notorious for not being able to calve without C-Sections.

Having a hard time seeing the jersey in that one. Awful muscular.

@lithuanian farmer calves Blues regularly without assistance. I think the problem in America is self inflicted
