We have several registered Guernseys available now. Please email sarah@sunnyknollecofarm.com if you would like to be contacted when we have additional A2/A2 grass-fed Guernseys for sale. 

Tulip’s Bull Calf

Tulip’s bull calf was born on June 9, 2019. He is third generation 100% grass-fed and A2/A2 by parentage. He has been nursing his mother since birth and learning proper cow manners in a small group of mother cows with young calves. He and Tulip have access to pasture 24/7 and she’s teaching him how to graze. He is growing nicely. He comes from Teddy’s wonderful cow family. Teddy, his grandmother, scored 88 points and was an exceptionally good producer. We have three of Teddy’s daughters, and three of her granddaughters in our herd. They are all extremely sweet, easy to manage, good producers, healthy, and thrive on grass. Tulip is currently nursing her calf full-time (I estimate he’s probably drinking at least three gallons a day) and still producing three additional gallons on once-a-day milking with no calf separation. He is currently unregistered but can be registered. He is growing fast, is big and strong, and I expect him to hit mature early. . He is currently available for $585 registered, $485 unregistered.

Aris

For several years, I hand-milked Aris in our pasture without even tying her up. She is easy and pleasant to hand-milk. We now milk in stanchions in our barn, and she is also easy to milk with a machine. Aris does very well on 100%-grassfed and is a steady milk producer. She is an excellent mother and can easily birth a calf, get the calf up and nursing, and care for the calf without human help. I have never had to assist one of her births, Aris has had 8 heifer calves and 2 bull calves; they have all been live births of healthy calves. Her udder is still high and well-attached, and she has healthy feet and legs. We have never had to have her feet trimmed or any work done on them. She is up to date on Selenium supplementation and Triangle 10 vaccination. We may soon offer Aris for sale because we need to reduce our herd a little for the winter, and because she would make a great family cow for someone. Aris last calved on July 26, 2019 and we expect to list her for sale when she is bred back, with sexed semen and due sometime in the summer of 2020 (90+% chance of a heifer calf). Please contact me if you’re interested.

Dam’s registration

Dam’s registration

Elsie is a fourth generation grass-fed, heifer calf. She’s A2/A2 by parentage, born July 5, 2019. She has been dam-raised by her mother, Eliana, on pasture since birth. Increasingly, farmers are recognizing that dam-raised calves are healthier, grow bigger and stronger, and develop a better strength and depth of rib with a better digestive system.. Healthier, stronger calves with better conformation grow into healthy, long-lived milk cows. She is nursing now and also eating grass and hay. Sired by MARODORE GARY PISTOLL-ET. Elsie is available for $2875.

We may list Arabelle for sale soon, so please contact us if you are interested.
