                                        Ruby Sue 

                                          Polled

                         75% Mini / 25% standard Hybrid for sale

                                                        $950 local sales

                             $ 1100( 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.

 

 

         

 

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.

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.

Polled.

Dam raised for 6 months.

Scrappy

50% miniature dual purpose hybrid calf

Scrappy: 50% mini Hereford / 50% Miniature Jersey heifer calf

Available at weaning in February.  Deposit required to reserve.

                                          RESERVED

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 at 8 days old she was only 23″ tall and 34 lbs.

Ace is a very sedate and respectful bull of nearly 3 years.  Proven.

Small mini Jersey bull of 36.5 inches at hip at last measure a few months back.

Ace is gentle with his girls and young steers running with him.

Ace cannot breed large standards, but has successfully serviced small stature standards of up to 46 inches.
