Casper, the Friendly Ghost

This is Casper.  So named because of all the white.  

Sometimes we’ll have a purebred Hereford calf with a little (or a lot) extra white if there’s just the right cow and bull combination.  Here’s an example.  You can’t see it very well in this picture, but this heifer calf has black freckles on her nose, too.  Weird!

Funny thing is, Casper isn’t a purebred Hereford calf.  His sire is a Hereford, but his dam is ¾ Red Angus and ¼ Hereford.  If you had to pick a cow out of a lineup to be Casper’s mother, you probably wouldn’t pick this cow.

Yours in travel,
