Calving Season 2017.......First Calf Born



Our first calf is born...



The Cow Boss tends to the new heifer calf...

He trims and iodines her navel.






First Calf gets ear tag Number 1






Mama has her fed and cleaned...






Here are a few more of the expectant mothers

relaxing on this non-rainy 

Western Oregon morning.




We traveled up river a few miles

to feed the replacement heifers...


A pair of eagles perch in the trees 

above the river...






They keep an eye on any fish in the river...






They also watch us feeding the cattle.

Oh what a cute baby--and those eagles are just gorgeous. Only once a year in the Spring do we get Eagles over the CT River here in SE CT. Everyone gathers to see them soar...we do have a lot of Hawks-- being near the ocean and Four Mile river; they like to soar in the updrafts and end up right over our backyard deck on the wind drifts. Just beautiful...
Hope all your expectant Mamas do fine...thanks for this glimpse into your life...hugs, Julierose P.S. My Pipere was a dairy farmer so I miss going to the farm...

Oh Happy Birthday little calf!
The eagles are so beautiful! I get a few quick glimpses of them here over my place, but I have removed all food items that they love (my cats, specifically) so they don't come over much!
Thank you for sharing the video of that sweet young'un! I have one baby goat so far (born maybe two days ago) and there's one more on the way anytime now. I love this time of year!

I have always loved calving season and the entire season of calves. How fun to see #1 being so well cared for by his loving mother. Very special. Glad it is a good weather day for the new guy.
