Also a lovely picture Ian. LIKE! Greetings Berend
These are Swiss Brown/Friesian cross calves. They are docile and strong and will be excellent milkers. The Rozynski farm is adjacent to Imbil State Forest and the forested ranges together with the irrigated valley flats create a very attractive landscape.
Dear Ian, I choose this tender scene to wish you a merry christmas and all the best for the next year, warmest wishes, Ed
Please forgive me raising the question but are you sure about the two breeds that have been crossed here?
I spent three or four years when young milking Friesians and working with them.
There seems to be no sign of any Friesian markings in these young calves ~ I love the two blondes

What do you think?
All the best ~ nick
You are observant, Nick. Thanks. Surrogacy is the answer. Jason and Lisa Rozynski have only the traditional Friesian herd which is changing to a Brown Swiss herd, with some cross-breeding. However, they purchase brown Swiss Embryo so though the cow that gave birth was possibly a Friesian her surrogate calf will have none of her markings.
