Calving Season....2018


The Morning....walk-through


Each day when we get over to the cow barns,

we walk through the herd of 

expectant mama cows

to check for new calves and to see

what cows are in labor...





The cowboy checks on the cows 

in the upper pasture...





I drive down below and check on the cows

in the lower pasture...



We had twins born yesterday:


Twin Heifer Calves





Calf Number 3..... and Calf Number 4





We will keep them penned off with their mama

for a few days...

then turn them out with the herd.





Below is a video of the twin calves:

The twins are adorable! I know twins always concern you, but these two look healthy and neither was rejected by mama, which is wonderful! And Heifers!! Yes! Even numbers now, 2 boys and 2 girls! Have you caught #1 nursing yet?

LuAnn Kessi said...

Yes, the first calf is nursing and running and jumping and doing very well. So is bull calf #2 and so are the twin heifer calves......everyone is doing just great!
