TB she has not been checked just guessing, but I believe that she is starting to make a bag. I will try to get a pic like you asked.
Butch I don't know a due date just a late summer/early fall guess. She has been with reg. char bulls. Very few calves get pulled from these bulls each year. I hope she can have it on her own. Never been around a milk cow and it just looks like there is not much room back there.

Do either of ya'll have a guess to what cross she is?

I don't know what cross she is, because she seems to favor Jersey I'll guess 3/4 jersey 1/4 Braunvieh or Brown Swiss
What cross were you told?
She's bagging in the rear... I'll change my guess to 9-11 or sooner.

Nice looking heifer and beginning to build up a little fluid in her udder. I think she'll make you proud.

All I know about her is that her dad was supposed to be full blood jersey, the seller bought her with a group of jersey crosses and does not know anything about the mothers. She was too "milk cow looking" for him and he knew I was wanting a family cow. I am going to circle 9-11 on the calendar , I'm betting your pretty close.

Thanks TB, I hope your right. Can I count on your support if I need some help pulling that calf. Butch is kinda far away and it might take him too long to get here. :lol2:
