yup! His calving ease seems good (didn't see it happen so I'm not sure how long it took) now it's time to see if the rest of his traits are as good as they say

Well the calf doesn't seem hungry so it must be getting enough milk

well best we can figure is she slipped did the splits and pinched a nerve! i went out to do chores one morning and seen her laying on her side in the pasture moaning called the vet out and gave some dexamethasone (for a few days) and worked with her for a while but she wasn't getting better

His calves have been doing well his heifer was the only one that we'll keep as a replacement.
