Here they come…

…our first calf of the season is a pure traditional English Devon…THF 1.  He’s an 80-pound baby bull.

THF 1

The mom is from our great Cashtiller line…the cow that won three straight national championships over there.

The sire is a mystery though. The calf may be the result of an AI with Champson Defender or the cover bull who was put in a few days afterwards.  This birth comes right at the dividing line between the two.

The size of the calf makes us think Defender will turn out to be the dad.  An 80-pound preemie doesn’t seem likely but we’ll just have to wait for the DNA results.
