We will gladly provide any known genotype for any trait, so if you are looking for something in particular, let us know.  Although the A2 allele is extremely common in our herd,  Belle Fourche Farm makes no claim as to A2 milk making consumers “feel better,”  or A2 milk treating or preventing any disease.  http://www.nature.com/ejcn/journal/v59/n5/full/1602104a.html   http://www.aseanfood.info/articles/11021883.pdf

Mrald Smarty Pants

Mrald Smarty Pants   Reg #: 026795
Sex: Female   DOB: 2011-06-10
Sire: Mrald Ringo Fire
Dam: Mrald Katrina
RESERVED

This is an extremely pretty cow, small in stature, with a long hip, good feet, and virtually perfect udder.  Click on her photo for more pictures of her, and pictures of her udder in lactation. Smarty Pants is a good brood cow and very nurturing of her calves.  She keeps good flesh during lactation, and has a lot of rib spring and depth.  She has a nice amount of width between her hind legs, which we consider a critical dual purpose trait.  She is dehorned and carries red.  She is a strong producer and her two calves with Macintosh have been outstanding. Smarty Pants was bred in Washington State by the Mrald herd.  She has numerous show winners in her pedigree and has some very old breeding from the Hillview herd.
