Breeding,  Calves,  Cashtiller,  David,  Essington,  Heifer,  TDA 7

Yes I have favorites…

…and TDA 7 has been mine for the past 10 years!

TDA 7 & Calf

And this morning she further endeared herself by presenting us with a perfect 64-pound heifer.  Somehow 7 has maintained her girlish figure (and udder) all these years.

And yes 7 is a Cashtiller daughter…who may well be the best Devon cow in history.  Her bull calves topped the British sales three years running…just as she earlier had won three Grand Championships in national shows.  And her breeder, Gavin Hunter, is once again serving as the president of the British Society.

And to share the credit, the sire of this heifer is Essington…named for the Brian Drake farm where this line originated.
