That's Crimson. She's new here. Relatively. She arrived in October when demand for milk far exceeded supply. Even after she came, the farm still struggled to keep up. Chad and Chrissy are hoping the customers come back this year, because once Crimson freshens, Hedy will follow within a week or so, and they'll be cranking out the milk.
Both of these cows are bred to Jersey bulls. If one of them have a bull calf, there is a chance that veal will be in the future. Keep your eyes open for more details.
If they end up having a heifer or two, the plan is to raise them for milkers. There isn't room on this farm for 4 milkers - really not for more than 2, so one will be raised as a replacement for Hedy, who is getting older and is prone to severe cases of mastitis, while the other will be sold as a family milk cow to some lucky person.
So be on the lookout in the email for updates on cow milk. The milk is registered with the North Carolina Department of Agriculture to be sold as a pet treat. This year, the farm will be offering A2A2 milk from the beautiful lady pictured above. Pricing varies, and A2A2 will only be sold in one gallon plastic jugs ($14 per gallon).

Enjoy the beautiful spring weather. Things will be oppressive before you know it.
