Polled.

DOB 06/03/2014

Registered with AMJAR

Registered height 37.5 inches at 36 months

average weight and height of sired calves :

mini dam 22-28 lbs and 18-21 inches

standard dam: 28.5-33 lbs. and 18.75 – 24 inches

Knucklehead is a small, stout, short -legged bull.  He maintains condition very well on pasture and hay. 

Although I speak kindly to and interact with all my livestock including bulls, I do not handle my bulls unless absolutely necessary for vetting. Knucklehead has been raised and kept both here, and at his originating farm, TOTALLY HANDS OFF.

He is compliant, but is known for typical bull outbursts in times of stress and estrus in the herd.  He is protective of his girls.  He responds to voice commands such as knowing and coming to his name and to hand signals such as waving him through gates.  He is generally calm, but as stated can have outbursts.  He should be regarded as exactly what he is: a dairy — Jersey—mini–bull.  They are inherently dangerous by fact, of course.  He should not be kept on small yards or in the presence of children.  He is tolerant of LGDs and other livestock, having been exposed to Llamas,sheep, goats etc…

 MeatBall: 100% Miniature Hereford Bull Calf For Sale

Registered Dam and Sire.  Being offered unregistered, but is registerable with American Hereford Association for an extra fee. 

Dehorned.
DOB 3/21/18
Dam raised for five months.
I do not expect him to be a super small mini , but around the size of his sire, Pistol. Pistol is small enough to breed the minis, but large enough to breed the small stature standards.
Not a nervous bull. Raised totally hands off, with respectful flight zone. ( You can be in his general area but he won’t approach you. If you approach him, he calmly walks away)
Sire and Dam current photos in post.

As of this update: 11/5/18.Meatball remains quite small and may be smaller than I had originally anticipated at maturity.

               SALES OF HEIFERS SUSPENDED UNTIL AFTER HOLIDAYS

                                        Ruby Sue 

Polled

                         75% Mini / 25% standard Hybrid for sale

                              $550 Final reduction of Price 

$ 655 ( requiring travel cert.)

She is primarily beef and will not likely be super tiny, but what I call ‘ squatty short ‘ like her dam, Freyja. Ruby Sue is fuzzy, golden red Hereford coloration.

Her dam, Frey, is 50% Highland 50 % Dexter and her sire,  Pistol, is full out small mini Hereford. That makes Ruby Sue about 75 % beef, 25% dual purpose. Only truly about 15% stout dairy.  She could be used as a milk cow at maturity. I milk Frey a lot. The cream quality is pretty impressive on Frey but would be less on Ruby Sue due to her high beef influence. She would make a fine addition to a mini beef herd.

 

 

 

 

            Last two photos taken 9/28/18

 

 

 

Be aware that she has her mama’s attitude. Very stubborn and flighty, but Frey has become, with attention and time, a pet with a strong will.

Ruby sue will not likely have a suitable temperament or demeanor for a novice bovine keeper.

 

 

 

Born 2/17/18. She is fully weaned.
* FULL DISCLOSURE: both Her Dam, Freyja and her sister, Izzy’s , first calves had to be pulled. Neither was an easy assist. Frey delivered her second and third calves with no issues or assistance. 
Anyone interested in Ruby sue should message , call or text me for more details.

  • STORY IS VERY SMALL.  SHE IS HAS A SLIGHT DAIRY BUILD WITH HYBRID VIGOR.  ALTHOUGH FORMERLY RESERVED BY A BUYER, THE BUYER WAS CONCERNED THAT HER SMALL FRAME WAS NOT SUITABLE FOR HER MINI BEEF HERD. I HEMMED HER IN FOR PHOTOS NEXT TO A MINIATURE HEREFORD HEIFER OF THE SAME AGE SO ONE CAN JUDGE HOW SMALL SHE IS. OH, AND DID I MENTION THAT SHE’S A GOOFBALL? ❤️

50% miniature Jersey X 50% Miniature Hereford

Polled.

Story is out of two lines mini Hereford and mini Jersey that produce small, high production heifers.

I expect Story to be mid mini range or less at maturity.

She has the slight, classic Jersey build with the benefit of the hybrid vigor.

Story has been fully vetted with vaccines ( Triangle 10 & Covexin 8 ) and has had health check by licensed farm vet.

Black Baldie Standard ( Hereford X Angus ) X FP Miniature Jersey

Little Toni is a beautiful dual-purpose hybrid.  Her well muscled form is full of hybrid vigor and excellent genetics.  She carries the heavy production genes of her superior miniature Jersey sire and the divine beef genetics of her Angus/Hereford dam.

I expect Little Toni to be upper mid mini at maturity.

Dam raised for 6 months.

Scrappy is not as large she seems to appear in photos.  She is very well muscled and that lends to an appearance of considerable size, but she is presently at 8 days old only 23″ tall and 34 lbs.

Fergie: miniature Scottish Highland X Dexter X Miniature Hereford

$ 685 ( requiring travel cert.)

ferie4

Born July 16, 2018 at  23.5 inches and 31 lbs.

Fergie is the hybrid heifer calf of Izzy: Mini Highland X Dexter and Pistol: mini Hereford.

She is slight and small, compact but well muscled.  She is technically a dual purpose heifer and could be milked at maturity as the Dexter and Highland are both natural dual purpose breeds, but with a high beef influence, I would guesstimate that she carries only about 15% – 20% true dairy genetics.  She would likely be best suited for a mini beef herd.

I do not expect her to be large, but ‘ short squatty’ like her dam.

Due to the genetic influence of the Dexter and the Hereford, her future calves may be solid black or bear the Hereford white face regardless of breeding bull type.

Emo was born November of 2017

Her dam is Holla, a standard Hereford cow and her sire was an unregistered Hereford.

Emo was purchased as a cow/calf pair from a friend upstate . We subsequently found her dam to be too tall for our tiny Hereford mini bull, Pistol.  Her dam is sold.  Emo is available.
