Here is a picture of a calf that is happy to be alive. She is one of the calves we had to pull, so she greets us everyday to for a scratch and to let us know she appreciates the fact she is alive. If cows could hug people, this one would hug us.

Had to assist a cow deliver a calf again this morning. We were hoping to video the delivery of the calf, but it was coming breech. Momma and calf are both doing well. It's another great day on the farm.

Had to help a heifer have a calf this morning. A whole lot of emotions go through you when a cow is struggling to have a calf. Fear that if we don't get the calf out it will die. Adrenaline as you pull on the front legs of the calf assisting the cow. Exhaustion as you pull with everything you have and the calf gets stuck in the birth canal. And finally, joy, as you get the calf out and it let's out a bawl telling you "hello world here I am." It's a great day when you get to help bring a life into the world. This is why we love what we do!

We tried to get our little orphan calf a surrogate mother, but for the safety of the calf we decided it was best to bottle feed him. So we now have a bottle calf. Thank you for all the great name suggestions...but the kids decided on the name "Little Orphan Manny"

This poor little bull calf has had a rough start to his life, he was orphaned by his momma. We are hoping that another cow with a newborn and plenty of milk will serve as a surrogate to him. Odds are he will end up a bottle calf, and he will need a name...any suggestions?
