Day 19: The J's & K's: Kalypso

Kalypso is also one of my favorites, but truth be told, I sure wished she milked a lot more!   She looks almost exactly like her mama.  You will notice that she is in a different pen, as she is due to calve within the next 3 weeks, she is hanging out in a pen bedded with lots of straw to await her pending calf (unfortunately, its a bull). 
Kalypso & Kaliedoscope are sisters - I find it very interesting that Kaydence (their mom) had these calves at nearly the same time of year (there was an 8019 in the middle of these two). Kaliedoscope (#7025) was the 25th calf born in 2007, while Kalypso (#9025) was the 25th calf born in 2009 - pretty cool, huh?




Full Name:  Po-Cop Bolivia Kalypso
What we Call Her:  #9025 or Kalypso
Age:  4 years, 2 months
Calves:  2, with #3 due anytime!
Lifetime Milk Production:  42,088 pounds 4,893 gallons
