Spring time is always the time of new life…today brought us our first calf of the year!
I was feeding the horses about 4 PM at the big barn and heard some bawling from the cows. When I went down to check, Ellie Mae had already had a nice heifer on the ground. The lil’ one hadn’t even stood up yet in this photo…this is is about as fresh as they get!
Ellie Mae is an Angus cross beef cow and we bred her to a Hereford bull…that’s where the white face comes in.
(the fuzzy spot on Ellie Mae’s face is a rain drop…sorry ’bout that)
