I've been quite deliberately going for shorter gestation for years, with the odd long one in the herd. When the milking cow calved at 284 I thought good, that's the long gestation cow out of the way. Little did I know!
There have been six longer than that.

There's a 281 out there in a small area right now, just walked her in because she's been messing around all day long. She does that, I know, but I didn't want to have to start getting her in after dark. Walking her in, she's finally popping a bag out. Why couldn't she have done that before we left her nice paddock?

Why do we do this? Oh yeah, because we really love it.
