Hope these picture links work. If they don't let me know and I will upload them tomorrow night. We were excited to finally get a heifer calf out of an AI pairing after 3 years when we got nothing but bulls from that sire the previous 2 years. Then about a week later we found the mother dead just 5 hours after doing chores. We think she laid down in some mud (which for this time of the year is rare here) and had troubles getting up and wound up bloating up and dying. Was our best 1st calf heifer too so hate losing some promising genetics.

Luckily found a 4-H kid 5 miles from us who was thrilled to death to take care of a bottle calf and already wants to show her as a yearling heifer. Couldn't be more thrilled we found a good home for the orphan calf but still stings losing the mama cow as she was a really good mother to the calf.

I like that heifer. She looks like she'll be a moneymaker

If she is as good a momma as #1 I will be happy.

That face! Her mama raised the 2nd largest steer last year so I'm fairly confident she'll end up a big, strapping girl plus we've kept the majority of her lineage - always great pelvic measurements, great mamas, udders, early/easy calvers. Say hello to Clover :)

I wanted to thank everyone for posting their calves as it really brings a smile to my face.
Here are a few of my new ones. I now have 6 calves out of 16 heifers and all have come with no issues.
This one was born 03/14/17
