This is my little "Bull's-Eye" heifer that has been photographed before, because with her facial marking, she is a "herd marker." She is a
fertile little gal. Looking back in our calving records, she was born on St. Patrick's day two years ago, March 17, 2010. She got bred
while still sucking her mother on summer pasture, and this Bull's-Eye heifer had her first calf when she was just a tad over a year old.
The calf last year was born on May 2, 2011. Yesterday, Bull's-Eye had her second calf, which also came on St. Patrick's Day, March 17,
2012, two years to the day from when little ol' Bull's-Eye was born herself. She raised last year's calf all by herself, and even though it
didn't weigh a lot last fall, being a late calf, it still brought quite a bit of money. Bull's-Eye is probably one of the more profitable cows
in our operation.
