Dairy Farmer's Thankful Thursday

We had a population explosion in one night!
You might even say, Christmas came a little bit early.
Eight new calves greeted us Monday morning.

It's not unusual to find one or two during calving season but
we were a little overwhelmed to have eight new babies 
to bring in from the pasture.  
Before each calf is taken to its own hutch, we record 
information about the calf and its mother, give calf vaccinations.
dip the navel with iodine to prevent infection and provide
a warm bottle of colostrum. 

I'm thankful for our employees that
work hard everyday in helping us
care for each calf,

for our two sons that work with us
everyday down on the dairy farm 
even though the pandemic has caused
a lot of craziness, 
Santa still stops for milk and cookies  on Christmas Eve!
