Agricultural Biodiversity or Drama Queens
We recently acquired two highland cross heifers, from Nout Cremers. Actually the grandmother of one and the great grandmother of the other was a Jersey cow I had here years ago. I sold her Limousin cross calf to Nout who kept her as a suckler. These two heifers are from her and her daughter, by a purebred highland bull. They are the two animals in the center eying us warily. I couldn't get any closer to them. They are getting over the trip in the truck, which was a bit traumatic for them, (and Nout).
