Lakota


The last remaining daughter of the best cow I ever bred, Frieland LV Dixie. Dixie was grand champion Holstein twice at Altamont and won numerous other awards that have slipped my mind. I gave her to Liz to show, so Lakota belongs to her.

Lakota is nine years old and is a daughter of Four-of-a-Kind Eland, a bull that has done quite well for us over the years. She has had seven calves, alas mostly bulls, and is on service to Carnation Counseler. Hopefully she caught and will give us a heifer, but you simply never know in this business. Every thing is a gamble with no guarantees.

Well good luck and hopefully it will be a heifer!

Is she sweet as she looks? She looks so girlie that I'd think you'd get all heifers.

Lisa, thanks! And thanks for the feed bags. We buttoned up about half the barn last night. Lots warmer!

Cathy, actually she really is not a bit sweet. lol. Got the look but not the attitude.
