1st calf of the season came this morning around 7:30am and 17' . 1st time heifer Star had no issues delivering a heifer. Star belongs to S2. S and I got calf brought up into an outdoor area attached to arena where the cows live. I bedded it up with straw and put a tarp on 1 side to help block the wind. 2 other sides are solid . The calf is running and jumping and nursing so all is well. Tonight snow is forecast but mama will keep her warm.
It's disgusting but 1st time mama knows what to do with her afterbirth. It's nutritious and hides the evidence from predators when she eats it. LN has named it Charlotte but that is dependent on S2 agreeing.
