Calf #3

Look at what Farmer John found last night!He'd been telling me for weeks that this particular cow was "real close" to having a calf. I believed him for a while...her vulva was pretty swollen after all. But I'd been waiting for weeks for a new calf and nothing was happening.

Then, we rode up the hill to check on the herd after our recent trip to the midwest. I had to agree, she did look close. Her udder was very swollen. And after school yesterday Farmer John reported that the much-anticipated calf was finally here!

The cow and calf are both doing well. They appear happy and healthy. The calf is nursing and pooping up a storm - which is a good sign. If only they could get their farmers to leave them alone
