It was a bitter sweet moment as I watched the group of
bred Holstein heifers being checked by the veterinarian
before being loaded on a truck for a trip to their
new home in Texas.
The heifers will be having their babies in just
a couple of months.
We have almost three years invested in the daily
care of each of these heifers.
I was with them on their first day on the farm
when we moved their mother to the milking barn and
I became their caretaker feeding them with a bottle.
I'm going to miss seeing their babies !
I'm thankful to have married the dairy farmer
that has shared his calling with me to be a caretaker
of these beautiful animals and a steward of the
land we call home,
the continued daily work on the farm,
