Hi there,
I'm near Dannevirke and have 2 lovely cows looking to get in calf early December. Mona is R5 Jersey x (possibly with a hereford) and Poppy is an R4 Jersey/Dexter. We usually use a neighbour's Brahman (cute calves with massive ears!), but he won't be available until mid-January and we'd like to pull our calving back a bit.
So my question is, what are your thoughts about the best way to get the job done. We can get the vet to do AI...where would I get the semen from? Alternatively, is there someone around here that leases a Dexter bull?
Any info would be very useful.
Thanks so much,
Andi

You could ask dairy farmers who are the local A1 technicians. The obtain the semen for you. I have found Dexters can have some very varied temperaments, so I would be careful about choosing a bull. You might find they have Brahman semen as well as I am sure they have lovely temperaments
