    I just bought a little jersey heifer calf to raise up for our milk cow. I would like to get some ideas on some names. I have a jersey that just turned a year old and I named her Willow. I like cute/unique names but have not thought of 1 yet that would fit her. Thinking 'maybe' Gracie or Button. Let me know what your cows name is...Thanks

    Since we got her just before Christmas, and she was a very pretty little tan Jersey gal, I named her Holly Berry. Just a little play on words there.

    A beautiful Dexter/Hereford milker is named Ruffles. Her daughter inherited her facial markings. Her name is Lacy.

    Just sold my first jersey :( and her name was Tinkerbell. We named her daughter Irradessa (fairies off Tinkerbell movie). Then there is Bonnie, Bluebell and Callie (short for California because she is Holstein and looks like the cows of the happy cows commercials!) lol

    Good luck!

    I love ALL of your replies. Such cute names. Willow,my year old jersey was quiet and easy going and this little one is pretty spunky. She is SO cute.....I have a friend who absolutely LOVES her milk cows and now I know why. We have had beef cows for years but there is just something different about a dairy cow.
