Does anyone have one? I had no idea they even existed until I saw a mini/standard heifer up for sale on craigslist so looked into them. I thought jerseys were about the most adorable cow until I saw the mini versions!

If there is going to be another animal here its going to be a alpaca or a horse. And I'm leaning towards the alpaca , lolol.

Then probably a few more fowl ;)

But those minis are so stinkin cute !! I love those sweet liquid brown eyes :)

The mini cows are not just a field ornament they are for milking as well. If bred correctly they should produce just as well as their standard counterparts just adjusted to match their size. They tear the land up less, eat less and are easier to handle and contain than a larger cow and are perfect for homesteads because of it.

I got to show a steer in the round robin for 4H, he was the sweetest thing ever! I want a heifer now, or even a steer, lol.

If you're looking into meat, check into freemartins from local dairies. I highly prefer their meat over any steer. Leaner, more tender, and better flavor in my opinion. We keep a proven freemartin each year for the freezer.
