    Our Jersey cow is due to calve at the end of this month. She was bred to a dun Dexter bull.

    A heifer calf will be sold as we have decided to concentrate on full blood Jerseys.
    A bull calf will be steered and kept for freezer beef unless someone is looking for a Jersey/Dexter cross bull.

    What are you asking if it's a heifer? I may be interested...

    Sarah,
    It would depend on how old she was when you got her. We want to make sure she is on Dolly long enough to receive a good dose of colostrum and then some. If you bought her at two weeks, the price would be lower than if you bought her at 3 months.

    Where are you located?

    PM me and we can talk.
