Kerry Heifer Birth Announcement
We were pleased to gain a new Kerry heifer this morning. When the total number of a breed numbers only in the hundreds in the US, each new heifer means a lot.
She is a little too closely related to her daddy, but that is one of the challenges with rare breeds.While I am already thinking about the best way to maximize heterosis while still keeping the stock pure; maybe we need to let her grow up first!
