One Part Panda, One Part Calf – Illinois Farm Raises Fuzzy and Cuddly Unique Mini Cows
I basically grew up in a zoo of exotic animals. My mom was obsessed with acquiring very random pets. We had one room full of birds, and some of them even talked. One time we had two mini potbellied pigs, four baby chicks, a mini poodle, hampsters, and later my mom got a mini horse. I am certain that she would've wanted one of these adorable miniature cows.

Buffalo, IL is about a four-hour drive from the Evansville, IN area. The population is only around 500, but that doesn't include the super cute and very unique mini cows that you'll find at the Pandarosa Miniature Ranch.
PANDA Meets COW
Travis and Danielle Heck are not your ordinary ranch farmers. Travis is actually in Law Enforcement and Danielle is a Teacher. Along with their careers outside of the ranch, and raising three children, the Hecks discovered a way to breed a new type of cattle.
Travis learned about livestock genetics and embryo transfer while breeding and showing cattle all over the country. We have built our program around functional small framed cattle with quiet dispositions. Our goal is to produce the most unique collectible bovine in the industry.
What is a Bovine?
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
