The cow was a good momma - she only needed a little assistance. And we have another healthy heifer calf to add to the mix.
I'm loving the wild color patterns this bull has thrown. Too bad we got rid of him last fall - every couple of years we try to "upgrade."
This heifer and momma got to spend 1 day inside - and then Monday night we kicked them both outside to bring in the last 2 cows to calve. We've had some bigger-than-average calves this year, and are keeping everyone contained until they calve. We are tired of trying to do this in the open pasture.
Plus....with all the rain we've been having? The calves at least have that initial 24 hour period to stay dry.....
