Dual-purpose heifer calf
SugarPlum is a DP ( dual-purpose breeding stock or potential future milk cow)
Polled (vet confirmed)
Dam is Valentine: Lowline Red Angus X Jersey
Sire is Little John: Small mini Jersey
That tiny influence of beef genetics from the dam makes for a ‘hybrid’ cow that produces well with excellent feed conversion and maintains well on pasture.
Valentine’s cream line is comparable to a Jersey with an average yield. SugarPlum has the higher concentration of dairy production lines through her mini Jersey sire. Her production is expected to be moderate to heavy with a substantially rich milk as suggested by her genetic lines milked here on the farm and from Valentine’s former heifers which have produced well for their buyers.
I do not expect this girl to be a small miniature, but I do expect her to be significantly smaller than a standard Jersey at maturity with a ‘ beefy’ build like her dam.
DPs are easy keepers compared to the traditional family cow. I have written two research articles about the dual-purpose cow available on this site at the links below.
