This little girl came the whole way from WA with her sister Sally Jo.  Her dam is a granddaughter of both imported Knotting bulls, and her sire’s dam is also a great milk producer.  Very happy to add her to our herd & excited to see how she turns out.

Janie unfortunately lost her first calf, but that has given me the opportunity to train her to milk & see what her production is like.  She was not settling into the role of milk cow nicely, so was dried off early.  But her milk is lovely, creamy & oh, so delicious!  By one week into lactation, her production was ramping up close to 2 gallons a day, and she hadn’t hit peak yet.  And of course, she has the lovely udder she was bred for.

Calving History:

8/5/16 – (DOA) red heifer by Belle Fourche Clay

In the top additional photo below, Janie is one year old.  The second photo & udder picture are from her first lactation, taken two weeks after freshening.  The jars of milk are from day 4 and show what a nice thick cream line she gives.
