Yep, I got one, but it will be borderline both on the calf itself and the pedigree whether it gets to stay.

Because I've upped my milker numbers I'm selling my surplus youngstock as maidens rather than taking them to fresh calved heifers, and the Allentown calf is right on the cut-off point. She'll either be the best calf sold, or the lowest ranked kept. emoticon
