We started having our first calves of the season this week. Our youngest heifer, #6 had her first calf. The beauty of our cattle is that they are such good mothers. We have little problems with them taking care of their calves or having problems calving. In talking with my neighbor, his 80 cows have already lost 6 calves due to complications and poor mothering. With our small herd we cannot afford such losses. We are expecting 12 more calves this summer and hope for no problems.
