For sometime I have wanted to follow the life of a calf born on the farm, starting at birth through her having her own calf and joining the milking herd. Why not start with calf number 1? I will make a new category for calf number 1 on the side of the blog, so that you can easily see all of the articles about her.
She was born on the 2nd of January 2013. Her mother (Dam) is #2264 in M&M Dairy’s herd. Her father (Sire) is Sobieski.
I like to run around the hutch while waiting for my milk! It took several tries to get a semi clear picture of me!
I’m still trying to master drinking out of a bucket with nipples on the bottom, but I am getting it!
Now that we have our tummies full, it is time to relax. We will spend most of our day just lying around, not a bad life! Right now I am inside the maternity barn where I was born inside a hutch with a heat lamp. I also have a coat on because it is winter time. I will stay inside this hutch for a couple of days until I am good at drinking without any help, and then I will move to a hutch outside.
Hope you all enjoy this new feature of the blog!
