Yesterday morning around 11:00 the last fall calf was born at JJB Cattle Company. You may be thinking to yourself, “The last one heck he just had the first one.” Well there are only two fall calving cows on the farm but it was a long wait and I’m glad it is over.
Both mother and baby are doing well. The heifer calf was born unassisted and was very motivated to get up and get her belly full. Since she was so aggressively trying to get up I just let her do her thing yesterday and waited to weigh her this morning. When I got her on the scale she ended up weighing a 95 lbs. which is not too bad would have liked for it to be down to 90 and ideally 85 but since she was unassisted I can live with it. No name for her yet but you will be seeing a lot more of her.
