Hidden River Ranch Jersey and Nurse Cows
We raise Nurse cows, which for the most part are calm, easy calving, easy going cows.
Our main girl is Sherry, she was our first ever Jersey. She has shown us how wonderful Jersey's can be and has produced a number of great Nurse cows for us.
The nurse cows we sell are Jersey/Angus cows. They have the milking abilities of a Jersey, with rich cream and medium volume. These girls you can add an extra calf or two to them and turn them out to graze, without the worry of too much milk and issues that go along with that. These girls are easy keepers, do not tend to run down like a pure Jersey tends to and just keep more meat on her bones.
We find the personalites of our crosses are that of a Jersey, very calm and easy to handle. They are not overly large cows so that helps with the handling of them. Although we state they are nurse cows, these girls make wonderful family milk cows as well.
Rosie was born in Feb 2012. She is an excellent nurse/milk cow here on the farm. She is a Jersey/Angus cross, loves people and stands well to be milked and takes care of her foster calves well.
Rosie is open in 2015, we will try for a rebreeding to our Jersey bull in 2016,
