    And it's another boy [​IMG] I was hoping the third time's the charm, but I guess not, I keep telling her I want a girl, a giRL, a GIRL, but she's not listening, this is her third calf and all have been boys.

    But why does he have to be so cute! And friendly! Anyway I thought I'd show him off. He's still alittle wobbly looking, but he was bouncing all over the place!

    Very cute. We are going to be breeding our Jersey heifer in a month. There is a man in our area that will come out to your place and do AI and guarantee you a heifer. They sex the sperm and he actually guarantees a heifer. I'm so excited about that. Technology has come a long way.

    I won't be eating him, so I'll be thinking about the money when he sells. But just think if the first one had been a girl I'd be playing w/ two calves now. I guess I'm destin to have a herd of only one. (I know I could buy one or more, but that's not the point)

    Wow, that would be so neat to have a guaranteed heifer! How much does he charge? Don't know that there is anyone around here that could do it, but I'm currious! And I'm envious that you have a jersey! Me and my mom have been wanting to get one.

    Now I get to start planning the next calf! I normally use my mom's bull, but she sold her big bull and has a calf that won't be ready yet, so we may see about visiting my dad's new bull!
