Have brought a new heifer home last week. She's belgian blue cross, not bred yet, 1300lbs.




Don't mind the rope. She's been kept like this in her owner's place. She doesn't know what a hot wire is yet, but soon will need to introduce her to it.

I always enjoy your posts.

Don't take this the wrong way, it is said in the fondest remembrance and with nostalgia, but your pictures take me back in time.

Definitely not my kind of female, but I know that is what you breed for. She is stout!! How old is she?
She's 21 months. She sure might be quite a challenge in such things like calving, but I'm pretty confident in my own experience and my choice in bulls and she doesn't look to be narrow. I'm very excited to see her do her job later.

Building up my own herd's number. This weekend have brought new weaned heifer from a neighbor. She's mid April born, around 900lbs, Angus sired out of bbxdairy cow. Have limox cow from the same dam. Really great growth and seems to be quite friendly. Hopefully she'll make a fine cow in the future.






Earlier bought heifer has been AI'd with angus almost two weeks ago, so fingers crossed that she stuck.

An update on the bluex heifer. She has calved today. She hasn't stuck on the first try, so the next one was with a cheaper straw. At least have an alive and healthy calf.

This photo was taken on the 18th of November.

And here are some today's photos.

Even if she was incalf to a dairyx calf, there still is a worry when you have a more extreme muscled heifer. On top of that the calf appeared to be backwards... Well, she seems to have a great calving capacity as it wasn't a hard pull.
