This Calf Needs A Name. #WordlessWednesday


February 22, 2012 by dairycarrie

Last Friday I went to a cattle auction and I came home with a new little heifer calf. Her mom was a Holstein Jersey cross and I’m guessing that her dad was a Holstein. Since Friday I’ve tried out a few names for her but none have stuck. So I’m turning to you guys, help me name my calf! We keep the same first letter for our cow families so we can’t use B, D, G, K, L, N, P, S.

And of course… Whoever has the perfect name for the little girl will get some WI cheese delivered to their door.

To enter, please put your name idea in the comments section!
