Cow of the Month
Lingo (with Lil-Stef)

January's Cow of the Month is Lingo. Just like hospitals, we are highlighting our first birth of the year. Lingo had a heifer on Jan. 1, whom we named Lil-Stef. We chose that name because our employee, Stef Newhouse, delivered the calf and it was her first time doing so. Newhouse has been with us for 6 weeks now and is sure to spoil that calf for the rest of her life!

As for Lingo, she is 3 years old and had another heifer last year named Latoya. Lingo averaged 7 gallons of milk per day in her first year of milking, which is a great amount for a young cow. She also carries the Red factor gene, which means she has the potential to produce Red and White Holsteins in addition to Black and White ones.

Our goal in creating this newsletter is to keep customers informed of new products, specials, helpful hints, interesting facts, and recipes using our products. If you have any comments, suggestion, ideas, recipes, or general input, email us at info@hansendairy.com
