These 6 calves (5 heifers + 1 bull) are now available for sale: heifer-Bondini, heifer-Macadamia, bull-Romeo, heifer-Snickers, heifer-Peekaboo, and heifer-Butternut. Click on their names, and you can read about when they were born. 🙂
We weren’t planning on selling any of our calves this year, but with the drought, and a very real possibility that our cows will be dropping in milk production much sooner as a result, it seems as though we should at least investigate the possibility of selling some…. Mike posted the ad this morning and we already have someone coming out tonight to see them! 🙂
They are fed 1-1/2 gallons of fresh, raw milk each/day. They run in a large fenced in pasture with trees for shade, and we’ve also begun giving them some hay as well. They have not been fed any grain.
THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT “MINI-HERD” FOR SOMEONE TO GROW THEIR OWN GRASS-BASED DAIRY WITH… LIKE PERHAPS SOMEONE MOVING TO A NEW FARM IN MAINE, LIKE CHIOT’S RUN, LOL ??!! (wink, wink) 🙂
