Taxi Calves

Did you know we give taxi rides on the dairy farm?  Our baby calves get a taxi ride on their first day on the farm! We pick them up in the field or in the maternity barn where they are born and deliver them to the calf raising area. The taxi they ride in, of course, is actually a wire enclosed wagon with a non-slip rubber floor pulled by a small tractor. Today's taxi calves are twins--one boy and one girl. We don't even charge extra for two riders!


The mother of the calf will follow the taxi to the first stop which happens to be the milking barn . Once the mama cow enters the barn, the calf taxi continues on to  the calf raising area. The taxi pulls up and stops in front of an individual hutch that the calf will call home for the next six to eight weeks.  The end to this taxi ride is where my work begins to provide good nutrition for the calf and monitor closely during these first weeks of life.

Our commitment to provide high-quality milk begins with the care each calf receives because healthy animals produce a healthy product.



   These two boys (now grown up) are my favorite taxi drivers and
                     we're looking forward to a lot of taxi calves
                                    in the next few weeks!

  9. The majority of those who desire a travel agency job are the ones thinking about traveling. A travel agent position will certainly open up opportunities for you to go to the Caribbean, Venice, Egypt, Tuscany, Malaysia, Morocco and any place else in the globe, however, not always. But in many instances, having a travel agent position allows you for you to visit the well-go to blog article narrow walkways of Baghdad, bargain with carpet retailers of Turkey and gesture with the man-eating tigers of Nigeria.

  37. Travelling with friends, family, and loved ones can be great, but the benefits of social travel are very different from the benefits of travelling alone. With the right mindset, you'll see how travelling alone is not only an incredible life experience- it's often a necessary life experience. غواصی کیش
