That's daisy (the bashful), she's really changed since becoming a momma moo and is more like a mother duck now and no longer bashful.@CrealCritter looks like the calves have "buddied up" well 😁 In that pic, looks like one mom is babysitting, giving others a break 💕
Fall cooling around here. 65 up to 75 today. Nice. Still overcast and wet out but, it'll clear some later. Back to job work this week. Hung out at home last week, in a non productive funk. need to energize with an attitude adjustment.
Time for cup #2.
Daisy is my favorite and the smallest of the cows, she delivered first and the smallest calf. I was conserned about her the most because she and he were both small. We put them both in the finishing yard for several days to keep an eye on them. I didn't see him nurse right away, although he may have, I just didn't see it. So we fed her calf a little colostrum, just as a precaution.
I think you already know... But It's vital a newborn calf receive colostrum within a few hours of its birth. Colostrum is a critical source of antibodies, specialized proteins that provide protection against infectious diseases, including those caused by bacteria and viruses.
