This group of pregnant cows will calve in the next two weeks and are being provided with grain, hay and a mixture of silage in a measured amount every day.
Although August is hot, it's a good month to be a dairy cow resting in the pasture, eating all you want and drinking lots of water as you wait for a new baby calf.
Healthy babies are always welcome blessings on the dairy farm!
Twenty three years ago, we had a healthy birthday blessing of our own down on the dairy farm.
( I did eat a nutritious diet but I didn't get a two month rest before I had this eight pound boy!)
