Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

One of the signs of fall on our dairy farm are the new
 calves that are being born almost daily.
We call it the fall calving season. 

Calves born during this season are the first babies of the heifers 
we have raised on the farm. It takes two and a half to three years to
 raise a calf from birth until she will have her first calf.

It's truly  a celebration for us to see this new mother have her first calf.

                       I'm thankful for new life down on the dairy farm and for the opportunity
                                   to see each calf grow and give birth to the next generation.
