Better with Thyme Sunshine Polled Heifer Calf, 21.5 inches at birth, A2A2, BB, BB by parentage

Sunshine is the third generation on our farm. When she was born we were so happy to have a heifer from Starlight! Sunshine is just as sweet and calm as her dam and granddam, Moonbeam, in her temperament. So far, she is our most “in your pocket” Mini Jersey and we love how much she loves us and follows along with our lead.

Sunshine’s pedigree is predominantly Holterholm and Misty Morning Farm. Both bloodlines of small Jersey cows she comes from have been bred for grazing, A2 milk, polled and smaller stature. Holterholm cows average 6,000 pounds per year (2.42 gallons per day), 5.2% butterfat and 3.8% protein.

Sunshine is a heifer calf born in 2023 and we plan to breed her in the late fall of 2024 for the first time. Her teats are all pointing straight down and look like they will be as long as her dam and granddam’s teats.

Sunshine is registered with the American Jersey Cattle Association (AJCA) and the International Miniature Cattle Breeder’s Registry (IMCBR).
