We have recently added a couple of Zebu cross heifers. These heifers will be crossed with our miniature jersey bull once mature. Zebus are known for being exclusively A2/A2. Their milk has a very high butterfat content. Additionally, Zebus are highly parasite resistant and heat tolerant.
We have also decided to retain a half mini jersey heifer out of one of our commercial beef heifers to cross back with our other miniature jersey bull.
Pixie is 1/2 Zebu, 1/4 Miniature Jersey and 1/4 Lowline Angus. Beta Casein TBD.
Better picture to come.
Lucy is 1/2 Zebu, 1/2 Lowline Red Angus.
She is A2/A2.
Brandi is Half mini jersey. She is sired by Keelys Christmas. She was an "oops" with one of our yearling commercial beef heifers. We plan to retain her and eventually cross her with River our other miniature jersey bull.
