2014 Calving

2014 Calving

We had to set a broken leg tonight. After we were done we noticed a cut on her nose. Blaze took off and came back with a band-aid. As you can see it actually stuck. This calf was born around noon. At 6pm he was found with a broken leg due to his popularity. Her mother was taking care of her but another cow that was starting to calve was trying to claim her too. The two fought so much the calf ended up with a broken leg. All three were in a patch of buffalo berry bushes which caused additional cuts and abrasions. We are hoping she survives, her odds look good with the extra TLC she is getting.


About Beer Ranch

I'm a farm/ranch wife and mother of 4. I've lived all my life on a farm caring for Angus cows. Currently we raise cattle and a variety of crops including wheat, corn, sunflowers, millet and peas. It is a great life and great way to raise children. We live and learn everyday about the world God has made for us. We try to find better ways of taking care of the land while raising food for people.
