Even the coldest of weather can’t stop the natural cycles of birth!
The kids found this fresh born heifer in the barn, wet and shivering. She was carried into the basement to be warmed up. After a good morning in the house and some nice warm colostrum she was ready to be returned to her new home. Her name has to start with an A due to her blood lines and there is still a good debate as to which name it will be. It’s a toss-up between Amore and Ariat. She is so pretty and will be a nice addition to the farm.
It is so cold here, hard to believe anything can survive such temperatures. She is snug inside of a home-made bale hut in the barn and is thriving so far. As always new life is always welcome and enjoyed over and over again through the years on our farm!
She is a mix of Ayrshire, Guernsey, Jersey and Holstein! I bet she’ll be an amazing milk cow some day!!
