On the same day as we sold Delight, Blessing, and Adam, we got the new cows. One is a Jersey-Holstein cross who is going to calve in a few weeks and produces five gallons-a-day upon freshening. We named them Elation, or Ela for short (an 'E' name). The other is a Brown Swiss who will calve at the end of March and produces six to seven gallons upon freshening. We named her Feliz, since we bought her form a Hispanic family, and she was our Christmas present: "Feliz Navidad!" It was very exciting getting them. Dad's sister and Dad's Dad hauled them for us from Prosser, WA. Since they were not trained to hot fencing, we built a T-post and wire fence with hot fence on the inside. A couple of shocks and they haven't even tried to go through it. They are still shy, but they are doing well.
