Whatever is in the water hasn’t washed out yet. We have a list a mile long for bull calves, so of course our lovely wonderful maternal cows have heifers –

Is this a conspiracy to keep their calves around?

If girls are born, they get to live long, full, happy lives.

Boys….succumb to a much shorter humane but terminal life.

Oh well, who can resist those cute faces!

Last week we took these photos of the expectant mothers:

And a parting shot – Who’s got the hay? Hungry mamas!

We’re always glad to trade the cows unlimited hay for an unlimited supply of fresh milk and cream~
