My Lowline cattle all started with Skunky. She is not a Lowline but 1/2 British White and 1/2 Holstein. Because of her large size I wanted to breed her to something smaller in hopes that I would get offspring that fit into my Dexter herd and still be a dual purpose cow. It took several attempts to get what I wanted and it did not happen until after I sold Skunky. Skunky went onto being a family milk cow, and with the help of her new family I did get the calf that I was after. Skunky had excellent milk production, often staying in lactation with little drop off for up 14 months. She produced around 5 gallons a day and would also care for bummer calves. Here sire lived to be around 20 years old working as a clean up bull on a dairy.
RdoubleD Fancy is 1/2 Lowline 1/4 British White and 1/4 Holstein. She is Polled, A2/A2, Born April 2008 and stands 43 inches tall. Her sire is Quartermaster and he stands at about 40 inches tall. Quartermaster was the 1998 Australian National Champion, he has sired many US Champions. Fancy has had successful show career showing in other breeds, and competing in cow/calf pairs winning Championships. She is also a excellent milk cow, producing 2-3 gallons a day. Her milk averages from 9 tests are; butter fat 3.65 and protein 2.92. Fancy takes care of others calves, often being used as a "Baby Sitter". When I think of what a dual purpose cow should look like I think of Fancy. She is deep ribbed with lots so rib spring, has excellent food conversion, nice wide hooks and pins, and a very feminine face and head with an over all wedge looking body.
