Thank you! Kind of hard to tell in the pic because he pretty much obscures her but that was taken a week before weaning and she really didn't draw down much.

TC, did he outdo the others so much because of her, or his resourcefulness?

I'd say both. He was eating cubes out of my hand when he was 6 weeks old; he definitely never missed a meal!

Oh, wait. You mean robbing? Never saw it but doesn't mean it didn't happen. She's a little helicopter mom and never far away.

Yes. I have a favorite heifer now, her calf is the oldest by a few days, but is really growing. I was bragging on her to my wife one day, then later saw him slipping in on another heifer while her calf was sucking.
