I was convinced the poll hair thing was true.... Until a month ago. Is as SURE. Gretel was having a bull because of her poll hair(it was crazy last calf who was a heifer). All other poll hair cows have been true to wives tale. Not this one! Gretel threw a gorgeous, healthy heifer calf and had the sleekest poll hair ever. BUT, yes, that looks like heifer hair;)
Pia(Piedmontese)- trying again for an A2 Jersey/Pied Heifer calf! My dream cow!
Our sweet LGD, Cali
Our fierce barn kitties, Alice and Bella
A big flock of Henny Pennies
A few Muscovies that roam around and heritage turkeys too.
Yep, she's a registered Swiss. I have got two. I raised steer calves for 4-H my entire life from this line, and yet could never get her to sell me a heifer. Now I am hoping to start a herd for my daughter to get her 4-H calves from. I love the Brown Swiss breed. Nothing compares in my book.
