This is our little heifer that we purchased in Colorado from a dear friend and breeder. She is of grass fed New Zealand genetics Her sire is small framed New Zealand AI bull named
ISNZ Canaan Nevvy Pioneer. She is gentle and sweet as can be. She will mature in the mid-size range and is A2/A2. We look forward to seeing what offspring she will produce. She has a cute, small face and the "doe-eyed" look. She is on track to mature to about 44 inches. She is bred by AI to Sure Shot Captain Morgan for a 2016 summer calf.
trying a bite of prickly pear!
Here is Addy. She is one of our Holt Creek cows out of Nebraska. She has calved a heifer and a bull calf for us here at the ranch. Her first calf is our Texas Cowgirl that we retained for breeding.
Addy is A2/A2 and is from the grass only lineage of Ben Gotchall. She does really well in here and is the "Boss Cow" in our herd. She gives just short of 4 gallons a day on her grass only diet and has a nice, high tight udder. She stands at 45 inches at the hip.
Here is our big girl, Twiggy. She is out of Ben Gotschall's grass fed herd in Nebraska as well. She is A2/A2 and stands at 46 inches tall. She gives 4 gallons a day on a grass only diet. She breeds and calves in the pasture with no assistance. She is a keeper!
Here is Betty. She is our painted cow that we purchased from Ben Gotschall in Nebraska. She has a high tight udder and produces 4 gallons a day on a twice a day milking schedule. She has had 3 bull calves for us and we are hoping for a heifer this go round. She calved in October and will be bred back soon for an early fall calve in 2016
Miss Photogenic is what we call her... Cowgirl is a 2013 heifer from our Addy cow. Her sire a 43 inch bull named Pvt. Pyle. She is as gentle as a house cat and has done well in our winter pasture. She had a bull calf in August for her first calf and had done an excellent job in the milking stand. She was AI bred for a summer 2016 calf to Sure Shot Ambassador. We really want a heifer out of her this time around!
Holly is one of our smallest heifers right now. She is a daughter of Barnyard's Carpenter Smurf and a mid-size jersey dam. She is staying pretty small right now and we consider her a long term keeper here at the ranch. We have her in the pasture with two young bulls right now, Spotted Dog and Marshall Dillon (Chapo), for a spring 2016 calf.
Holly is a sweet girl with her daddy's dished face and baby doll eyes. She is a Red Dog Farm bred heifer that is a real joy to have.
Bonita has come a long way since we brought her home from east Texas. She has turned into a real nice little gal that has kept her weight over the winter with pasture grass only. We love her looks and she is really easy going. She is A2/A2 and is bred to our Sancho bull for a September 2015 calf. She twists her ears around listening to whatever is going on... Funny girl! She is a keeper!
NJL Kassie joined our girls last month. She is being halter broke right now and not really liking it at all. She is a daughter of Warren's Tribe Butter and out f TR Mona Lisa. We purchased her from Nancy Laundry in Virginia. She is A1/A1 and should mature in the 43-44 inch range. We will pasture breed her this summer to one of our miniature bulls for a 2017 calf.
