We are sad to announce that we must start to slowly liquidate most of our livestock in preparation of a move to a larger farm in Eastern Canada from our home here in the Jackson Hole area of Wyoming. We have a lovely Jersey cow A2a2 named Daisy who is registered with Heritage Jersey Organization(#HJ076) who was born in Meteetsee WY on 3 march 2017. She has had 2 uneventful births, the most recent being a heifer calf born 28 April 2020 who we have named Lilly. Lily is thriving on milk and has started to eat our local grass and grass hay. She has beginning nubbins. We believe Daisy is polled but Daisy’s AI sire was not, obviously. Daisy is in milk with the calf taking the entire amount currently because of my temporary health disability issues. WE hand milked her initially but migrated to the excellent Udderly easy vacuum pump using the nifty swinging gate design pictured in Mary Janes book. Daisy has a halter and respects fences. We have a single wire electric as well as solid rail fences. She has had zero health issues and has been Bangs vaccinated. I vaccinated her with Clostridium this spring but have not given any vaccine to Lilly as of yet. Daisy is very affectionate with me and loves brush grooming and lots of neck scratching as does Lilly. Daisy is vocal if there is something she needs like food or water or her calf near her. She is an exceedingly good mother with the two calves she has birthed. We want to sell her in milk with her calf if possible because we normally like to leave the calf with mom at least until 4 months of age. Our offering price is $3000 for both animals. I paid $1600 for Daisy as an 8 month old heifer. We feed both animals our own grass hay(brome, timothy, orchard) with some purchased alfalfa and orchard grass along with Chaffhaye, kelp meal and other minerals like HCO3 and organic apple vinegar free choice. Daisy had a hoof trim a year ago. Daisy is mid sized and has put out normal milk production for a cow of her proportions. Last year we shared the milk with her calf and milked her in the evenings with about 1-2 gallons left over for our family which diminished as the calf grew of course. She milks from all 4 quadrants with 3 equal teats and a 4th with somewhat less. We followed MJ’s Heritage Jersey protocols and have never had mastitis. Our email is cal48koho@gmail.com and phone is 307 203-2109.

Such a lovely write-up Hugh. I hope someone gives Daisy and Lily a good home.

Hi MJ and friends. We have had 2 inquiry's thru the HJO but most were too far away. A CL ad has yielded several nearby folks who we think would treat her well and it is sad to think of her leaving but getting her to a farm in Nova Scotia was just too big a hurdle to contemplate. If it happens we will have to start with a new Jersey and hopefully rejoin this fine family of cow lovers. This lady Jersey has bored a hole into my heart and I hope she can transfer her affection to new owners. It wet snowed here yesterday but our garden escaped the predicted hard freeze to live another day or week! We will miss Daisy and Lilly.

Daisy and Lilly SOLD! Well Sad Day as our two girls or one girl and one woman cow were loaded into a trailer and sold to Nathan, a new farmer with 3 farm daughters who are looking forward to bonding with these 2 splendid friends. Nathan intends to stay with HJO and I gave him MJ's excellent book to help them along. Thery will be missed but we can't take them to Canada very easily so we will have tostart from scratch again. I will continue to follow the chatroom of course.

So sorry you had to part with these lovely gals, but it is understandable.
Very happy you found a home for them. With 3 farmgirls I am sure there will be plenty of love for them. Glad to hear they plan to be a part of HJO.

Best wishes to you and your family.
