Baby Calf!

Baby Calf!

Our milk cow, Babe, finally had her calf yesterday morning! January 8, 2010. The temperature was below freezing!
I went out to start my chores and there the cow was...delivering...or trying to deliver. I had to call my brother-in-law (part owner of the milk cow) to come and help the delivery. My son, Sam, also helped. It was a difficult birth.
After delivery, my three daughters and I worked with the calf and cow. Both were very cold. We did what any 'farmgirls' would do...we brought out the quilts! :-) We covored both cow and calf with quilts and fresh straw. The cow lay for a couple of hours. She finally was able to get up. They both are doing well....for which we are thankful!
Sam named the little bull 'Rodeo'.
