Notice that Gypsy is showing her Angus side.
Yes, she is "beefing up". This is a wonderful thing, since there is a lot more demand for beef cattle than for dairy. The white on her belly and face come from her Holstein genes (Grace is part Holstein), but I do think her body will turn out to be very much like her Red Angus daddy. She will, however, give more milk than a full-blooded Angus, which means she will raise some nice calves for somebody.
Penny, my other pregnant heifer, is bred to a Black Angus. It would be nice if she had a heifer too. Of course, if we were to sell it, steers bring more money per pound. So as long as we have a healthy calf and no problems arise, we win either way.
Grace isn't giving as much milk as she was at first. She doesn't get a lot of grain, only a bite to keep her coming up to feed the calves, and a nice big serving (two big coffee-cans full) when I milk her every five days, because I don't want her stomping around and being restless when I'm practically underneath her.
