Have you ever heard of them to be good milkers?  There is a reason why there is a good business for recip cows?

Sorry, not speaking for everyone else, but my cows I bought with those genetics have no problem with calving but were not the best milkers.  It's better to you use them to flush and have a good recip raise the calf.

Udders didn’t have as much milk as other cows and calf would have developed slower if left in pasture but I brought him closer to barn to give him feed early.  Need special care and creep feed early
