Number 14 - Happy 20th Birthday to the Grand Old Mother

We had a set of yak-cross twin heifer calves born on August 15, 2001. 

Both calved in 2003, entering our cow herd.

The red heifer, who became number 14, didn't like the idea of becoming a mother at first. She jumped out of her stall in the barn because she wanted nothing to do with her calf. With some patience and convincing, she finally accepted it.

Both twins were in our cow herd for many years.

Number 14 has produced 18 calves so far; 
some of her daughters have also entered our cow herd.

This year old number 14 calved very late, 
producing a heifer calf born January 6, 2021.

Once again this heifer will be a keeper.

Cooking Yak-Cross Beef

Yak-cross beef can be used in place of your favorite beef recipes, however, don't overcook yak meat (use slower cooking methods - never microwave) and use a thermometer rather than a timer.
