Congratulations, Cindy! You may not be thinking this way yet, but here's something to consider for the future. If you decide you don't want 4 female dairy cows then the people that you bought Bea from may want to buy back the calf if or when you are willing to give her up. Clearly her parentage is something that they would choose. They chose the bull and they wanted to size up, right? That's why they were selling Bea? It gives you a place to start and you would have what you wanted. . . a cow in milk.

thanks everyone. it isn't my miss sally's baby, but we are excited none the less. also feels like we have a plan again. and now that bea is confirmed, i can get serious about AI'ing sally o'mally. i actually stopped in to see the vet today and walked through the whole process with him so that i could start planning it out. now i am doing a calendar tonight/this weekend and trying to see where we want to go with this over the next two years. lover boy and i are excited in that this gives us choices. we could literally have 3 calves in 2017.

keeley you are a business lady thinking ahead for me. thank you, ideas like that are super-duper in the farm community. it also goes both ways as the seller kept Bea's best buddy, and she was even prettier than bea. i told them if they ever need to get rid of her to send her our way ;>
