“Candy” A2 cow
“Candy” is a 47” mid-sized, blood test confirmed A2/A2 Jersey cow. She is 2 years old, in milk and is dehorned. Candy calved easily without assistance on January 9th (“sugar”) and is producing 3-4 gallons a day on twice a day milking. We do not calf share. She is pastured and supplemented with grass hay and grain.
We machine milk, but her teat length should be sufficient for hand milking as well. All four quarters are good and her udder is well attached and well balanced. She is still a bit ticklish, but is a good girl.
She was AI’d on March 7 to a registered, Heterozygous Polled, Mini Jersey bull named Firecracker. It is too early yet for a pregnancy test, but if it was successful, she’s due December 14th.
Candy is a sweet cow, but not in your pocket and she is low in the herd hierarchy. She leads and stands tied.
SOLD -Bull calf
Born February 20th at 27″ tall, this bull calf will most likely be around 48″ tall at maturity.
His sire (Dad) is a dual registered painted, A2A2, mini Jersey bull named Missouri Sunrise Orion. (He is much smaller than he appears in this photo.)
His dam is Honey, our standard-sized, mulberry colored Jersey cow. She has a stocky build and a fantastic udder, producing 6 + gallons a day.
He is available now, as a bottle calf or could probably be grafted on a cow to nurse. Or we can keep him until weaning at 3-4 months old.
If you want him as a steer, we will band him. Jersey beef is very good and with his stocky build he will fill out well. However, he could also be a pet/companion steer. If so, we will train him, but we must know early so we have time to work with him.
As a bull, he cannot be used to breed a mini, as the resulting calf could be too large to deliver. He’d be good to use on mids and standards.
If wanting him as a bull, we will check to see if he is A2A2 or not. Our cow is A1A2, but his sire is A2A2, so he could be either.
Asking $300 if he goes before weaning.
After weaning (approximately 3-4 months) and depending on what you want, max asking price of $500.
Pending-“Sugar” – $1500
Sugar was born on January 9th, 25″ tall with a 5″ cannon bone; with these measurements, she ought to be 44″-46″ (mid-sized) at maturity.
Her sire (Dad) is a dual registered painted, A2A2, mini Jersey bull named Missouri Sunrise Orion. (He is much smaller than he appears in this photo.)
Sugar’s dam (mom) is our A2A2, 47″ mid-sized Jersey cow, Candy. Sugar is Candy’s first calf.
Candy developed a very nice, high snug udder with teats of ample size for machine or hand milking. She is producing approx 4 gallons a day.
Sugar has had a great start. She had her dam’s colostrum and was bottle fed raw milk from day one.
She will be ready for her family at the end of March – beginning of April weaned, halter trained and friendly.
PENDING – $1,500.
