We all know how babies are about putting things in their mouths. Jody (yes, I changed the spelling) is no different. After all, how is a baby going to know what tastes good if she doesn't try new things?
We constructed the pen out of old hog-panels, giving her plenty of room to run and play. When she's weaned and big enough to run with the other cows, we'll take the pen down.
We think Jody must be 3/4 Jersey and 1/4 Holstein; all the 1/2 Holsteins we've ever seen were black-and-white spotted, with perhaps a tinge of brown in the black areas. She is larger than most purebred Jersey heifers, bigger-boned and coarser; but she has all the coloring of a Jersey.
