The Perfect Cow: Karlie
You want a cow that’s skinny and kind of tall, like a model. That means her body is efficient at producing milk. It’s not wasting energy on making fat stores.
The udders matter, too, in breeding dairy cows. You want udders that don’t sag and are well-attached. That means they’ll survive years of milking and they won’t be prone to getting lots of bacteria on them because they’re dragging around the barn.
You wouldn’t change a thing about Karlie’s udders.
You also want a perfect backside. Karlie’s hip bones are well above her “pins”, which are the butt bones. That makes it easier for her to birth calves.
Karlie starts at $170,000, nicely equipped.
