Cow 554 is a 50% Registered South Poll Cow. She sells with her 75% Registered South Poll Heifer Calf 2272.
Cow 554 is coming 7 years old (DOB 5/1/2015). Calf 2272 is one month old (DOB 03-08-2022). We weighed both on 4/16/2022. 544 weighed 1230 lbs. 2272 weighed 126 lbs. 2272 weighed 72 lbs at birth.
Once upon a time, we had a neighbor that only had a a cow or two. We bred his along with ours to our South Poll bulls. Cow 554 was born. Then we bought the neighbor's place and Cow 554.
Her last year's calf is also in the auction (Lot# 7 / Ear Tag # 2122).
2272's sire is currently unknown. We multisire our pastures with Registered South Poll bulls. After the calf is born, we then submit it's DNA for testing to determine the sire. This process can take a few months to get the result back and as the calf is just now one month old, we simply don't have the results back. The calf has been registered as "multi-sire." Once we get the sire information, it will be based along to the buyer. Regardless, of the sire determined, the heifer calf will be a 75% South Poll.
Both 554 and 2272 have been tested for BVD PI and are negative. 2272 has received no vaccinations so far.
