No matter the month, all new calves are welcome down on the dairy farm.
We don't typically try to have too many August calves due to the heat but
sometimes, it just works out that way. I'm thankful that all the calves and their
mothers are doing very well and probably adapting better than the farmers!
This baby bull was born yesterday and has been moved to
his own individual hutch where he can be fed and monitored closely. The
baby does receive his mother's milk the first three days to make sure he
gets all his mother's colostrum.
Mom has moved to the milking herd where she is being milked twice a day.
The milk she produces will not be put in the milk tank for at least
five days or when we receive the results from the test on her milk to
make sure there is no medication present.
It is the absolute truth that there are no antibiotics in milk!
We are so thankful for the opportunity to work everyday
to produce high-quality,antibiotic free milk for you and your family!
