Notes from the Chief
Cow hand notes…Not much for calving action this week with only one new calf on the ground. This calf is from a first calf heifer and she seems to have plenty of milk for the little one.
The sure sign test of a healthy calf is to feel its nose. If the nose is warm, all is good. If the nose is cold, something is wrong. A simple, quick way to check on the calf.
Another way to tell if the calf is healthy is how active it is. If you can’t catch a calf, it probly ain’t too sick. By the time you read this our main herd should be well into the calving. A check on them on last Thursday had them all content and only a few starting to bag up. Hopefully the snow will be gone and we can move them from their winter-feeding area to a nice clean pasture for calving.
