DOB: June 5, 2008

Cicada has a beautiful mammary system with a very smooth fore udder and long teats that are easy to milk. She is the most dairy of the Valentino daughters, and the only doe we still have from him. She had triplets as a first freshening two year old, a single buck as a three year old, and quads as a four year old. Her high test day on DHI in 2012 was 5 pounds at 24 days fresh. We decided not to breed her for 2013 kidding, so we continued milking her, which is why she has two lactation records for 2012 — one is the standard 305-day lactation and the other record is her complete lactation.

Cicada classified as VG with 86.4 under Tim Flickinger in May 2011.
