Annabelle was our largest cow, a Mini Jersey/Mini Durham cross born & raised here. In her 7 years, she gave us 4 beautiful A2 heifers and a bull calf. Sadly, we lost her last winter during a storm. Annabelle, we're still missing you, but Violet is doing you proud!!
Daisy gave us Blossom last year. She is mini Jersey, 38" tall and 4 years old. She is as sweet as she is cute. Everyone needs a milker like this one! She is A2/A2. Her bull calf born in May of 2017 is also A2/A2, shown at right. "Lupine" is started on his halter training. and has Bard's sweet disposition. He will stay small, currently 36" at 8 months. $1000

Glen Land Bard is sire to last years bull calves and our heifers, an A2/A2 Dexter with excellent disposition, chondro free, dwarfism negative. His dam was from a milking line. He has passed his sunny attitude to all of his calves! (and that's a 48" gate)
Blossom is now 38" at 27 months. Daughter of Bard (Dexter) & Daisy (mini Jersey), and A2/A2. She has just given us her first bull calf out of Gus -" Rio" is a keeper! Blossom will be for sale at weaning - $1000. (sale pending)
We have discovered the many benefits of miniature cattle! Our girls are quite manageable with great dispositions and the perfect amount of milk- Steers are mature at 2 yrs., averaging 300-400 lbs. of beef in the freezer. Our cows have had many calves in the past nine years, with no birthing problems. Photo below is our yearling bull, Gus. He is A2/A2, with #1 disposition. Sire was a registered Dexter, Dam is registered Jersey. He is mid-size, at 44". Gus has been sold, but has sired two beautiful bull calves out of Blossom and Violet.
"Tiny Tim" is pure Mini Jersey, 1 yr. and 38" - Tim will sire Daisy's next calf.
