Three years ago on Martin Luther King day our first calf was born on our farm (to us anyway) and we named her Holiday.
She was a sweet calf and very nice looking so we saved her as a replacement heifer. When she was two years old we bred her to our bull, McKinley.
She turned three years old last week... and this week she had HER first calf!
She's shaping up to be a very good Momma, her baby was cleaned up and nursing within minutes of its birth!
It was an exciting day on the farm. The successful birth of a calf from a first time Momma, plus the fact that the Momma was born right here on the farm.
I'd say the new baby is a Winner indeed.
Oh, yeah.... a winner. You're waiting to hear who the winner was of the Milk Cow Kitchen book right?
HEATHER S is the winner!
Thanks to all who commented!
