    I'm more of a reader than a poster on here, but I thought I would introduce one of my hooved friends. This is Jessa she is due the 31st, but she should calve anyday soon as last night she had big clear "goobers" hanging out. She will be entering her second lactation soon. She is a great cow, and I'm hoping for a heifer as most do. :) Time will tell...

    She's sure pretty - and her coat is very sleek!

    That cow has a lot of strength in her front, big shoulders. Looks like a decent match for Comestar Outside. He adds more rump width. Her legs are nice a strong as well. Another bull option is Astronomical. He might be 14%, but it would work well.

    How was the calving? Were you able to watch or did you walk up and see everything had already occured? Congratulations to you, Jessa, and the little one!!!

    I didn't see it happen, but have seen many. I went out this AM and the calf was nursing. (the joys of farming)
