Day 12: Red Week - The Shorthorns - Princess

Full Name:  Po-Cop Logic Princess EXP
What we Call Her:  Princess
Age:  2 years, 11 months
# calves/lactations:  2

Princess is the first Shorthorn calf born on the farm.  Let's just say, I'm not overly impressed.....her milk production doesn't exactly set the world on fire, but if she keeps getting pregnant (having heifer calves most of the time too), and remains not a problem with feet or mastitis, she gets to stay. 
Granted, her life as a cow started off rough.  She aborted her 1st calf 2 months early, and she was full of milk, so we milked her anyway as a very young cow, and tried our best to get her bred back again, which was successful, resulting in some of the cows you will meet in the rest of the (elongated) Red Week.
