|this cow had her calf 5 days after this photo.|
sadly we have a cow twice this size and she's not due till April
she did not like me taking a photo of her from behind, poor thing.
|this udder isn't ready yet. each nipple has a quarter and only her back 2 quarters are full|
the day she calved they filled out and "rocketed" out, almost pointing out to the sides.
|cows have a discharge when they are preparing to calve.|
as they get closer that discharge gets heavier and more frequent.
We only have 3 more cows due this week. Then we get about a 10 day window. Which will be a nice break. And then the most precious of girls will calve, Little Mans Simmy heifer he showed last year. I may sleep with her! I don't leave the farm unless Mr. M is home. And then I'm not gone for more than 2 hours. It sounds like a lot to some, but you wait months and months. And you only get one chance to have a live, healthy baby. I hope everyone has a great week ahead.
