Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

Although our weather has been mild compared to our farming friends to the north,
we are still dealing with  extremely  cold temperatures that bring added stress to normal
calving situations. 

This new baby was delivered without complication  in the pasture but
we decided to provide a little extra help in warming up.
Our procedure  for warming them includes a short time under   a heat lamp, providing a
warm spot in the barn  and  the usual feeding of warm colostrum.
Tomorrow he will be moved to his individual hutch.

                                                      You can see he's quite comfortable.
                                       I'm thankful for the ways we can provide care for our
                                         animals during  extreme weather and that we are
                                                              one day closer to spring!
