February 1st starts off with a new heifer calf. Commercial Brood Cow 50 had a healthy, black baldy calf this morning. The pic is this morning not long after she was born, and the video is this afternoon after she got her tag and shots.
We had her noted as one of the first to calf. Once she calved we expect most the herd to follow soon. This afternoon, a few cows and two-year-old heifers were off by themselves and bagging up with milk. More calves should be on the way soon.
One of the ones who looks close and was off on her own is a purebred Angus. She is also tagged 50, so we call her Fitty to be different. We've always liked her and hope she has a healthy purebred calf soon!
Lorin and I have been around agriculture our whole lives. We're happy to be part of the family farm.
