Meet Nelly!

This is the newest member of our family. She is a pure bed Jersey heifer. We bought her Friday, on our way home from vacation in North Carolina.  No, we didn’t have room in the mini van, so we’ll have to go back for her!!! 😀

She’s 15 months old and has just been turned out to be bred with a pure bred Jersey bull, Peanut.

She’s a brown gray color with those big loveable Jersey eyes!   Hopefully Nelly will give us a beautiful Jersey calf!  Now we will have all the raw milk we could ever dream of drinking!  Boomer, our allergic Lab will have all the kefir and clabber he could ever dream of drinking too….ah!  The good life!

She will hopefully be ready for us to pick-up in a few months, depending on how quickly she is bred.
