The Calving

Well this year calving will be quite different from last year. It all started last year when calving was cold and stormy. This put dad over the edge and in the fall we sold the entire cow calf operation, all 300 cows and we only kept 15 breeding cows. All we had left on the farm was these cows and, 150 calves to feed and grass in the summer. So now the cows are getting close to calving and the calving barn is all ready. This year all 10 cows that will calve fit in the barn nicely. So if it is storming we open the gate and every single cow walks inside. This of course is better than choosing what animals you think will calve and not having them calve at all. So like I said calving will be different.
