Patsy came to Lucky Break Acres in November 2015. She is a Black Angus, a beef cattle breed, and is a permanent member of our herd. In the future, she will be bred using artificial insemination. Patsy is technically known as a “Black Baldy” because she is a mix of Black Angus and Hereford cattle, thus explaining the white marks on her face and body. We bought both Patsy and Loretta from a wonderful man in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin, who also breeds and raises beef cattle. Patsy and her cousin Loretta were our first foray into farm animal ownership.
Patsy is the boss of the herd. She eats before everyone else, faster than everyone else and is down to push anyone and anything out of her way. Patsy calved for the first time in April of 2017, giving birth to Dolly. She is a beautiful mother and our herd’s fearless leader.
