As with any cattle production, our females are the backbone of our operation.
We have a high expectation from our females and they need to perform in all areas including:
Fertility:Each female is expected to produce and raise a calf each year.
Feminine:Our females need to show femininity.
Udders: Each female needs to have a well attached udder with good teats and provide an adequate supply of milk for their calves.
Constitution:Every female must show good constitution to carry them through calving and the cold New England winters.
Temperament:Anything with a bad attitude is culled.
Structure:She must be overall structurally sound with good feet, a straight back and have good length and depth.
Longevity: This goes in hand with fertility. Females that return with a positive preg test result each year have earned their place in the herd, some of our cows are now well over 13 years of age and still breeding.
