After seven years breeding miniature cattle alongside his beef cattle, John Bartheld hit the jackpot.
The new member of the herd is Peanut, a Panda minicow belonging to an exclusive group of only 40 members worldwide.
Bartheld’s work paid off three weeks ago when the minicow was born. The Bellingham Herald reports Bartheld had a miniature Hereford artificially inseminated with an American miniature Beltie bull. He has another calf born earlier this year, Star, who almost qualifies as a Panda cow but doesn’t meet all of the requirements.
