This is what a newborn calf looks like

The babies are arriving. 

This afternoon the Boy and I have been camped out at the farm. We are lucky to have an office at the farm that we can work out of, which makes it a lot easier than driving back and forth from the house to farm to check on the calving cows. 

Luckily, we won't be sleeping on the air mattress tonight because the cow we've been watching decided to have her baby. We knew that there was a high probability that the cow would be having a heifer (a girl) because when we ultra-sounded the cow last fall, the vet was able to tell us that the cow was having a heifer. And the vet was right! 

Our new Hereford heifer calf.

This little girl brings the total to three calves, and we have 11 more to go. So excited to see her up and running around soon.

If you tweet follow the hashtag #calfwatch2012 to follow other ranchers and farmers telling the stories of their newborn baby calves. 


  1. How precious. :) So sweet.

  3. Yay for healthy calves!

  4. Thanks everyone! We are now up to six babies. I'll be posting more photos soon.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
