A place to find resources, discuss and learn about beef cattle farming and all its nuances. Okay, a place to joke around about farming, I guess.

And Here's Our Newest Edition...
SHE, sits safely amongst the weeds and believe me, I coudn't get any closer than using the zoom lense because mother was just a nose away guarding over her new precious little girl.
I tried to get a closer shot and check the sex of our new little one, but mother cow pawed the ground whisking up dust and loudly snorting, so I said, "Okay, you win"... and walked tentitively backwards and away from cow and calf.
Notice the newborns ears are pointing backwards at this moment. That is because her mother was starting to panick at my approach and the calf sensing that I may not be a friend and was getting ready to run over to her mother for safety. With my retreat the calf went back to relaxing and all was well again.
Nature truly is amazing.
