Calving Season......8 Calves this week



Our first week into calving...




8 cows have calved so far

5 bull and 3 heifer calves.






These are the calving grounds






Just across the river is our place.

See the red barn?

To the left of the barn is a little yellow building...

that is the Thread Shed






The cow boss is in the center of the photo...

he is herding a cow over to the calving barn.






She has been laboring all day 

and not making any progress...






We will put her in the barn 

and see if her calf is hung up?






We pulled her calf.....a healthy heifer calf.

Mother and baby are doing fine!




When we came out of the barn 

the moon was out:


It was a beautiful drive back across the river 

to home.
