Morningland Dairy has been very blessed lately with an overabundence of healthy bouncing heifer calves born to some very nice cows. We just do not need to keep them all.
We have three heifers we are putting up for sale at this time. They were born in November, two are 3/4 Jersey-1/4 Holstien, one is 1/2 Jersey-1/2 Holstien. We are milking their dams and they are all out of good cows. The 1/2 Jersey is dark brown/black with a few white patches/speckles and the 3/4Jerseys are fawn with white. They all had two days of colostrum, never been sick, very healthy girls. They are on cow milk at this time.
Morningland Dairy is a grazing dairy, using minimal grain, we do not use unnecesary drugs and try to be as natural as possible.
Price is $400 cash.
I will be taking pictures today of the 3rd calf and the other two dams. Please be patient.
Thank you!

Ohhhh! I'd love to have 49's heifer, but unfortunately I don't have the money or a way to pick her up right now. Would you be interested in trading for some milk goats? LOL

Just realized after going through my records and pictures that I posted the wrong pictures of "Smoki's calf". That heifer actually belongs to #51. We would also sell #51's calf so here are the pictures as they should be.

#51 is one of our oldest cows. But she is still going strong and milks well.

Hi, please let me know what calves are left and their genetics.

Did you AI the holsteins with the Jersey Semen? Who were the Sires?

Let me know, For example; For the heifer out of #51:
#51 is 100% Holstein dam/mother, no records
Father is Big Barney from Acme Semen Co, 100% Jersey.

or email the pictures of the remaining calves directly.

thanks

I'm sorry this has taken a while to update, I was away. These heifer calves are all sold. They are not AI bred, but out of a Jersey bull here on the farm.
Thanks for the interest!!

LOL! Took those calves two hours away to meet the "buyer" and he thought he was getting all three heifers for the $400. I'm back home with them and they are still available.:rolleyes:

Oh come on! Did the buyer at least pay for your time and fuel? This is a clear example why my weaned calves will be heading to the dairy auction in 2009....Sorry to hear about that non-sense....Topside

Myersfarm, if you are talking about #32 heifer, the first one shown, I brought her home yesterday. We've named her Emma and she has a cozy place in our barn now. I will post some pictures as soon as we all get settled in. Thank you again Ozark Jewels, she is such a sweetheart, and oh my she still has quite the appetite!!
