We had a new little winter calf born on the farm. Momma, #66, formerly #14 (she lost her ear tag) had a beautiful baby boy calf who we tagged #67. It’s odd that mom and son have ear tags one number apart but that’s the luck of the draw. This mom calved on February 9th last year so she is definitely a winter calver. Hopefully she’ll transition to a warmer calving time at some point on her own but for now she seems content to getting jiggy with the bull when the buds burst forth in the spring.
For those of you who’ve taken a tour in the past week, you’ve been able to meet this little guy. He’s definitely a cute one.
