Our Females

Our females vary in age greatly.  We try to maintain lines from various herds.  Most of our females are considered to have standard markings, but we will keep some undermarked or lightly overmarked animals.  Most have been halter-broke at one point at time, as we found that this makes working with them and their calves less stressful for all of us. 

We name our calves according to the international tattoo code.  In this code, each year is designated a unique looking letter.  (For example, we skip "O" because it looks like a zero.)  These guidelines are outlined in the ABWPA's Breeders guide.  2011 was designated Y; 
2012 was designated Z.
