Trained to Milk
CASSY is the ultimate family cow.  We were lucky to get her mother from a reputable 40 plus year Hereford breeder.  Mom was a runt for an unknown reason and they could not use her in their program.  Well we sure could!  What a fantastic cow and how much she taught us, we even trained her to milk.  Sadly, we lost her to prolapse on her second calf.  She stayed alive for a month and even came in to milk for her baby but just couldn't hold on.  Cassy means an extra lot to us because now, we can't recreate her.  She is the product of a small full blood Hereford (not dwarfed) and one of our past full blood Dexter bulls.  Cassy has become a steady brood cow for us and all has gone smoothly.  She has been trained to milk, and also nurses the entire herd if allowed.  
Her milk tests resulted in an average 5.5% butterfat content.  Amazing due to the fact that her mom tested 1.3%.  Cassy is calm, freindly, small, milks, has gone to fairs representing what Dexter can do for your herd and produces a really cool calf.
