Meet Makini (left) and Tootsie (right).

This is our Mother/Daughter pair of mini (technically micro) cows! They came from our friend across the river. Makini is some sort of dairy cross cow (we think mini jersey with her face and type), and Tootsie is half that mystery bucket of genes and half lowline Angus (beefy type). 

The girls are willing to work with the LGDs and all our other smaller animals (though our ram is almost their size!). We appreciate their easy temperaments and enjoy their antics in the pasture. 

We are testing both girls for Chondro (dwarfism gene) and plan to artificially inseminate them in 2021.
