I have a Jersey/Lowline angus cross heifer due to calve in a month or so. If she works as I hope, giving us a gallon of milk a day and a small beef for the freezer, I'd like another one of her. Cow number two would freshen at a different time to give milk year round. Since this cross is not easy to find, I was wondering if a Jersey dairy would consider breeding any cows to a lowline angus (assuming I get the semen to them). I don't know if dairies want all the purebred Jersey calves they can get, or if they sometimes breed to beef. Of course, for enough money they would probably do anything you want. Someone suggested that dairies might consider this in first calf heifers, since they are unproven, so they might not keep their calves as replacements. The quickest way to find out would be to ask, but I was wondering what to consider when talking to them, or any other suggestions. Thanks.
