Out of area Sales suspended until Fall due to record high temperatures and unsafe traveling conditions.

                                         Little T

                                          $750

                             

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

                                       Flossie

IMG_0235IMG_0133

                                           $600

Flossie is 1/4 miniature Highland, 1/4 Dexter and 1/2 miniature Jersey

Out of Frey and Ace, she is a fuzzy blondie with lots of personality !  She is just weaned at 4 months. ( 7/19)  I expect considering her current stature she will top out at around 44-46 inches.  Possibly with the frame of a small stature standard despite her nearly 100% miniature genetics.  It is apparent that some of her Scottish Highland lines have influenced her with standard size features.

Flossie will be an ideal candidate for a grass fed dual purpose family cow.  Her dam maintains weight well on pasture and hay with a bit of grain in the stanchion.  I milk her dam regularly and she is a fine producer of rich milk in impressive quantity despite her beefy genetics.     The Scottish Highland is used as a dual purpose family cow in their native country, providing milk for the family and beefy calves to be raised for the family table. Flossie also has superior dairy genetics through her sire, a foundation pure miniature Jersey and would therefore be an excellent provider of sufficient milk for a family.  Her asking price will go up as she matures.
