Baby Time

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

If there is anything on earth that makes the hardest heart melt, it has to be the sight of baby animals. Regardless of the species, the sight of the very young makes people “oohh” and “ahhh.”

Baby calves are no exception. Our Beefmasters usually have long legs and big ears. They almost all look alike this year. Although, some have very distinct markings. On this Valentine’s Day, I am posting pictures taken of some of our calf crop. They are all about the same age, which is about two months old.

Please enjoy the photographs. And, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Camera shy calves.  These separated themselves out of curiousity and then grew camera shy when I went to take a picture.

Calves, like children, like to spend time together.  Usually one mama cow will baby-sit the calves while the other mamas take a break.  Here I found several calves hanging out together on a beautiful afternoon.

They all look the same!  If it wasn't for good records, we would not know which belonged to which cow.  The green tags in the ear reveal their birthdate and dam.

Nursing on the run.  I always get tickled when I see a mama cow busy grazing and a calf nursing from behind, which is the only way to nurse on the run.  The mama cow is multi-tasking for sure.
