RdoubleD Nash Rambler will do. We pondered buying him last year, but didn’t, and we’re talking with his owner now about price etc. Nash is a year younger than Stella, and has the same dad as Bob. He’s a real cutie, and having our own bull will save the worry of making sure we have a guy with a good bloodline booked each year.
Speaking of guys, Doug is just old enough to notice Stella is in heat, and too small to do anything about it. Time to get the vet out here to take care of that business! Stella is still giving a good amount of milk for the short time apart from Doug. Sometimes a bit over a gallon, sometimes a bit under. Once Doug is weaned, I’ll be able to get more, with lots more butterfat. She’s still very motivated to hold some back for Doug right now, which is fine, since we want him to grow up big & healthy.
