01 Jul Carolina
– SOLD – A1/A2 –
Dexter Corner Carolina is a beautiful heifer from some great miniature Jersey heritage. Perfect for a family hoping to start milking this spring — You’ll have the opportunity to bond with her, train her to the stanchion of your choosing, and experience calving with her.
Carolina also offers a chance to work on your “sizing down” program if you are planning to head toward miniature Jerseys. We personally love mid-size Jerseys because they are easier to milk. Please note: we will screen the home that Carolina goes to as she is special to us.

We were so honored that our friend, Tim O’Donnell of Dexter Corner, entrusted us to raise DC Carolina. Everything about her is beautiful and sweet, from her graceful appearance, to her gentle demeanor. Tim bottle-raises all his calves, and you can absolutely tell the difference because Carolina is so comfortable with us. She warmed up to us quickly and has been very easy to halter & lead train. Whenever we spend time out on pasture, she comes over for scratches and love. Carolina will likely end up being a mid-sized mini, but that is great for milking!
