Our small herd of six heifers spent the summer in Grassey's pasture with Baby Bull....
...who did what he was supposed to do. Bruce knew that anytime after March 1 we could have some calves so he sorted them off and they are in the luxury pen with the barn, lean-to or old hog house for shelter.
#25, the heifer on the right, is the first one to start making a bag, the first sign of impending birth.
Bruce feeds them at night, it been proven that if a cow loads up with food before going to bed, she will be unlikely to give birth until morning.
I wonder if they have ever tried that with women? That would beat going to the hospital in the middle of the night.
They get a half scoop of yummy silage that has been fermenting under a tarp all winter, with a sprinkle of mineral for healthy babies.
WOW, close your eyes girls, here it comes.
Look at that fat tummy and the cute little udder.
|"She's just a little rude, don't you think??"|
After feeding his girls, Bruce stands and communes with them, that hopefully will make them feel a bit more kindly toward him if he has to start poking around in their nether regions.
Wouldn't you like to be in on this conversation?
