Day 20: The J's & the K's: Jelly
Jelly is again a favorite on the farm. Cows that have been around for almost 7 years have a tendency to grow on you. Jelly is out of a cow that was bought from a farm in Central Illinois when Brent came home to farm. Jelly is the most unexciteable cow there is - nothing bugs here, nor does she ever spook, get excited....nothing, very even keel. Her favorite place is in a stall or at the feedbunk.
You'll meet some of her daughters/offspring the rest of the week.
Jelly is the big tall white cow (I couldn't get the other one out of the picture)
