                                           Polled

                  75% Mini / 25% standard Hybrid for sale

DOB 2/17/18

                                 $650 local sales

                             $ 750 ( requiring travel cert.)

Ruby Sue is fuzzy, golden red Hereford coloration.

She has remained quite small and fuzzy.

She is primarily a beef hybrid.

Ruby Sue started out flighty and nervous, but has calmed to a fine and self assured heifer.  She is not a pet, but could be one in the right hands.

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.

FULL DISCLOSURE: BOTH HER DAM AND HER SISTER HAD TO HAVE THEIR FIRST CALVES PULLED.  NEITHER WAS AN EASY ASSIST.  THEIR SUBSEQUENT CALVINGS WERE EASY AND UNEVENTFUl

                          $ 850 ( requiring travel cert.)

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

Polled

DOB 8/31/18

50% miniature dual purpose hybrid calf

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

                              $650 local sales

$750 for interstate travel

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.  Due to the influence of heavy production miniature Jersey genes, she will likely be a moderate producer of rich milk perfectly suited as a small family cow.

                  $900 Final reduction of price

Registered with AMJAR

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.

Ace is appropriate in temperament for a small farm / homestead with adequate space for a bull.
