KALEB’s mother was a small, capacious cow with high components that served us well as a nurse cow for many seasons before we lost her at 12 years of age. His maternal half sisters are proportionally high producers for their size, and have high butterfat and tremendous capacity on a small frame. Use KALEB to decrease size while increasing capacity, components, and feed efficiency.

KALONA was a one-of-a-kind cow that, at just 45” tall, out-produced many of her larger herd-mates. She was the first cow I had to make a 7.0% butterfat test, in 2008. Due to an udder injury she became a nurse cow early, and was capable of weaning 2 calves, or 110% of her bodyweight, each year, while breeding back and calving again. Some of the best cows and bulls in my herd were raised by Kalona. She had strong maternal instincts and an excellent disposition. She was small of stature with tremendous capacity. She has transmitted many of her strengths to her female offspring, who remain favorites in our herd and will no doubt be bull mothers in the future.
