This means that I have not seen the cows much lately, and we continue to have lots of changes. We are now up to 10 heifers, and 5 bull calves. The calf barn is nearly full, and "Million Dollar Reward", Calf #101, is already ready to be weaned off milk and moved into the 1st pen of heifer group housing.
As you can see, she has grown well (thanks to Gail's TLC), and is already hard at eating her feed, which is a good sign that her gut is changing and that she is ready to stop eating milk, and start eating regular feed. She is 2 months old today, and is ready to move to the next barn.
|This is the 1st feed that our calves will start eating. Technically it is called calf starter, but we commonly call it "crunchies".|
