Marigold comes from some excellent breeding with many Superior Genetics and does who were scored with excellent mammaries on both her dam and sire's side (including her dam and BOTH granddams!). Marigold herself is no slouch, also scoring an E for mammary. She has a capacious, high and wide udder with very large teats. There's a lot to like about Marigold's conformation as well; she's elegant, refined and dairy. Her primary downsides would be that her teats are unevenly sized and I'd like to see a bit more width in her rump (says many Nigerian breeders!). I try to pair her with bucks to help improve upon rump, legs and ideally more plumb teats.
Marigold has been averaging just over 2 pounds of milk on once a day milking while raising her twins.
