Finally figured out yesterday these were twins from a few days ago. Big momma can handle these two I'm pretty confident.

I only have a handful but the 3 born I would guess have weighed between 60-70lbs.

Looking good so far! Good luck with the rest of the calvings. It sure is an exiting time of the year. Especially when you see a first calver doing a good job mothering a newborn calf.

Looks like it's going pretty good so far, I always breath a sigh of relief once the last heifer drops her calf. Our recips started yesterday six on the ground so far 19 to go. They are due the 7th and our AI groups the 10th and 12th we have had a few AI calves but the majority of what we have so far is out of the heifer pen.

Good luck with the rest of your girls. 33 out of 61 calved in our heifer lot. 21 out of 63 down in our older lot. They are picking up the pace lately.
