Milk Man First Calf Heifer
« on: March 04, 2012, 10:19:53 PM »
I know there are some people that have been wondering how MM heifers were doing. Here is one of our MM heifers with her steer calf out of an Infocus son we raised. She is doing really well. Has a nice bag. Milking a lot better than I could have imagined. Have another MM heifer due to calve the 18th I will post pics when it hits the ground. This girl is going to make a good cow. Any opinions on what I should breed her to this year?

Her Dam is a maintainer cow out of FJH Primetime. She didn't lose much body at all. She is going to be a pretty good sized girl. Her dam is pretty big too. This heifer has been really easy keeping which surprised me.

I have thought about Troubadour, but I am thinking I80 on her just to make sure she has an easy time with her second calf. Here is a pic of another Milk Man heifer that we raised and sold. She has been doing really well in the Chi classes. Out of these MM cows I would really like to get some black calves with a lot of chrome.

I would use either a Shorthorn or a tested non-diluter to get rid of the chance of rat tails.

If she is a little bigger try JIMMY THE GREEK to downsize her.
