DOB: January 13, 2007
Charlotte has a
beautiful udder, easily milked, high in the rear, and one of the best fore udder attachments on the farm. Her teats are long and thick, which makes milking a breeze. She freshened with a single buck in 2008 and triplet does in 2009.
Charlotte freshened in February 2011 with quads, and on a one-day milk test, she milked 5.9 pounds! She finished out her lactation with just over 900 pounds of milk – our not-so-little bucket buster! The pictures above are from that lactation in 2011 as a four year old.
She gave birth to triplet bucks in 2012, and her high test day on DHI was 6.5 pounds at 23 days fresh!
Charlotte classified as VG with 89.0 under Tim Flickinger in May 2011.
Charlotte’s kids are named after characters in Charlotte Bronte novels.
Retained does: Jane Eyre (2011)
