Ol Granny is 18 this year, her calf was born 3/21/08. She's smooth and solid. Still has all of her teeth but they're worn smooth with the gums.

Granny looks good for her age and is still making money for you, is this her 15th calf? Do you plan on breeding her back for another year?

As long as she'll have them we'll keep breeding her. She's only ever had one heifer and I hope every year for another.
This was her a couple of years ago, pictures are from different years. The latest of them is 2005.

dun,
how much would you say she weighed for most of her productive life? the one picture makes her look like a toad or a pig.

with longevity like this she is probably the one cow you should flush.

She still looks good. Take a picture of her when she gets shed off this summer. I bet she will look fat and sassy again.

With her teeth I don;t think she'll ever look fat again, sassy yes, but not fat.

I can only hope that people will be able to say the same of me when I'm an old woman. :pretty:
Next year dun, will be the year she gives you a heifer. She is saving the best for last.

Hope it isn;t the last! She's one that if she had twin heifers I would sure keep them.

We have one sort of like her.
I would have to check but I think she is 15 or 16 and this year weaned off our heaviest calf which was a heifer that weighed 696 on fescue, fescue hay and mamas milk.

Now part of that was that the calf was sired by Grid Maker and he has done a super job for us but this same mating two years ago also produced the top weaning calf.

My cow is a bit thinner that Duns but she breeds back AI and will recondition herself quickly after weaning.
