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)
Rio and Teddy are growing up and great partners when I pick blackberries. These young bulls are both A2/A2. Rio is son of Gus and grandson of Daisy. Teddy is AMJA registered Jersey.
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 sired Jasmine out of Daisy.
I love this baby pic of my favorite boy! Teddy's Valentine is a heritage mini jersey, A2/A2 and will hopefully become a charming little herd sire next year. (a big help watering)
Violet is also A2/A2, a Dexter/mini jersey cross out of Bard and Annabelle. She is now expecting her second calf out of Tiny Tim in the fall.
Daisy 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, registered with AMJA. This year's calf, Jasmine is sired by Tiny Tim, also A2/A2, registration pending.
