These are the new girls on the farm - both A1/A2, Maddie and Posie. We have plans for these sweet girls when they mature. We purchased this group of three in April - all grands of Ochwilla Hills Adam - what a great birthday gift!!
Stay tuned for the continuing adventure!
Daisy was our first mini Jersey, 38" tall, now 7 years old - Everyone needs a milker like this one! She is A2/A2, registered with AMJA and MJHB. Daisy is now bred back to Cowboy. Their bull calf this year was a beauty.
Her 2019 daughter, Marigold, is sired by Teddy's Valentine, also A2/A2, AMJA registered. Pictured at left at 9 months, is now mature, carbon copy of mom and also bred to Cowboy for a fall calf.
This is Holly, 43" and super calm. Another A2 girl, her great-grandmother was my first milk cow, a registered mini Durham. - pics of parents below. She & Cowboy produced a sweet little heifer last fall, and she has become a sweet milker and great mama.She is now AI bred to TDH Little Pot of Honey.
We have discovered the many benefits of miniature jersey cattle! After some experimentation we are going in the direction of building our herd of AMJA registered mini jerseys. Our girls are quite manageable with great dispositions and the perfect amount of A2 milk for those who have problems with lactose intolerance. (2+ gallons/day) Steers are mature at 2 yrs., averaging 300-400 lbs. of beef in the freezer. We currently have six girls, working on building our little jersey population with three calves due this fall. They will be available in the Spring!
I love this baby pic of my favorite boy! Teddy's Valentine is a heritage mini jersey, A2/A2. (a big help watering) He sired Marigold before moving on with Violet to a wonderful home.
Violet is also A2/A2, a registered Dexter sire and mini Durham/mini Jersey dam, out of Bard and Annabelle. She is mama to Holly by Tiny Tim
This charming young bull is Rocha's Cowboy, a RR Noble grandson, very tough to photograph because he is always in your pocket, wanting a scratch behind the ears. He is 2 1/2 yrs, 41" now, hetero polled, A2/B, and has sired several calves and more on the way. We are sooo happy with this guy.
Tiny Tim is sire to Jasmine and Holly - A nice A2/A2 Jersey bull that grew to midsize.
This is Posie's older brother, Jessie James. He is 36 1/2" at on year, hetero polled and A1/A2. A very sweet boy for sure. Should put on some size this year.
Jasmine is pure princess, 3 years and 43" - Out of Daisy by Tiny Tim A2/A2
1st freshening is 3 gallons/day.
