Babies on the Ground

Our calving season has begun and I’ll share some quick pics of the new babies.

The famous #29 that my daughter Heather has had a few issues with.  She's getting very old and will probably leave the farm this fall but she just dropped a beautiful black white face heifer!

We’ve just started the season and we have two heifers and three bulls so far.  They’ve all been very small but you wouldn’t believe the energy they have.  They’re keeping their mothers busy keeping up with them and when they run across the meadow they thing they’re Super Babies!

 

Spring calving is almost over

We only have three cows left to calve this winter/spring and I wanted to share some adorable pictures of this years crop.  This years calves probably have the blackest coats and most prevalent markings of any we’ve raised.  They are all about the same size and very playful and curious!

George, the orphan.  He takes a bottle about once a day and the rest of the times sneaks up behind an unsuspecting mama that doesn't realize two are nursing.  Of course, being behind a cow nursing leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to a nice clean coat.

Butterfly is her name.  Can you see it on her forehead?  She was born last week and we had another little one this weekend.

They all are about the same size except for the last three and they all run and play scaring their moms to death.  These last three pics are of the ladies that haven’t blessed us yet with their youngster and they have about two weeks left to finish out the herd.
