First calf

Postby snoopdog » Thu Jul 20, 2017 4:47 am

Got a little surprise yesterday , first calf out of my new herd of fallbreds . Wasn't supposed to be for another month at least, looked good, both it and momma were resting , bright eyed and perky though . I gotta admit , it really scared the be nice out of me because of the timing . I hadn't been over to check on them in a couple of days {my stepdad does a daily check ] because Ive been in the hay after work . I'm really glad it went ok, its really hot, and going over this morning before work.

Congrats! Calculation may have been off or possibly a little premature but as long as the calf is nursing and active I wouldn't worry.

Congrats. Glad it turned out to be a good surprise for you. Seems like something unexpected always happens when I'm tied up with hay or something else for a few days and don't get to check on them like I normally do.
