For Sale – Elm Hollow’s Mayflower, AHCA # pending

A beautiful heifer calf with all the right stuff.

Born on Thanksgiving day in 2023, an “M” name was needed for Elm Hollow’s second heifer of the season. Mayflower fit her perfectly. This girl and her half brother, Major, are such good friends that they share their mamas with each other!

Their mothers are half sisters and have been together since they were born. They happily nurse each other’s calves and babysit for each other. It is fun to watch this close-knit group interacting in the pasture, but it can get a little confusing at times.

Mayflower is a delightful heifer calf. She has all the right stuff as far as conformation to Highland standards and her temperament is sweet and easy going.

As with any Highland calf, she will need a companion. That companion might be another heifer or one of our sweet steers. Her half brother and cousin is Elm Hollow’s Major and she has been close to him in the pasture since she was born. Major’s sale will be on Thursday, June 20, if you would like to consider him as Mayflower’s companion. Because heifers cannot be safely bred until they are 2.5-3 years old, a steer companion makes sense. Those new to Highlands will have time to get to know the breed while allowing a heifer to mature.

Of the five calves in our first halter class, Mayflower is my favorite. Her dam’s maternal traits are excellent, and because we see a similar temperament in Mayflower, I expect her to be a wonderful mother when the time is right.

What next?

If you are interested in participating in Maflower’s sale, please email me at [email protected] and tell me that you will be bidding on Mayflower so I can create an email list of bidders before we begin her sale.

You may submit your opening bid at this time if you wish, but you don’t have to make a bid at this time to be included in the sale. This is like a slow paced auction where you can ask questions about the calf and have time to think before you bid.

I’ll be asking you some questions before the sale begins to see if there might be a calf coming up that I think might be a better fit for you. Feel free to ask me questions as well. We’ll have a total of 19 calves available during this summer and fall.

Mayflower is available for a minimum opening bid of $7,000. The sale is Tuesday, June 18, 6:00 pm Eastern Time.

Update: Mayflower sold for $10,000.
