Milly's lineage expands...again

Well, Maren seems to be following in get mother's hoof-steps: she just had her 2nd heifer calf in as many lactations. I'd have to look back in the records to be sure, but I think Milly had something like 3 heifers in her first 4 lactations. As you know,  Maren is not pure Holstein, as Milly was. She is a Norwegian Red and Holstein cross. This new calf is even less Holstein, coming from a Red Dane sire. We'll have to come up with a Danish name that starts with 'M' for this newest addition to the Milly family tree.
