Although our daylight hours are silently
slipping away as fall approaches,
the hours in September have been packed
with weaning calves and cattle working.
Each calf has received a new ear tag for
identification, vaccinations, and wormer before
being moved to a new pasture.
It wasn't a rodeo but it was fun to watch the
calves kicking up their heels and showing off
as they were released from the head chute.
We decided it was their reaction to the cooler
temperatures we were all enjoying!
Even though we are not milking cows on the farm,
we are still raising babies in the hutches.
These calves are from our cows
that are being milked at other farms.
Their care requires feeding milk and grain
twice daily and monitoring them
closely for any illness.
I'm thankful for our life on the farm and for the jobs
of raising calves and kids!
