Some other folks saw her picture and were speculating on her genetics, which makes no difference to me. Just got me curious. As far as I am concerned she is just a black cow, one I hope will give me several years of good calves. The one she replaced gave me only two calves, but good ones, then just wore out. Guess she was already old when I got her. Another lesson learned.
You say you have learned a lesson, but are doing alot of hoping that the cull will work out. Do you know how old this "new" cow is, and how was that determined?
