On December 27th, Luna, our first heifer, calved and we now have a new addition. Unfortunately, she’s in a large paddock and somewhat wild, so we don’t know if it’s a bull or heifer yet.
We’ll have to give them a few days alone and then put them in with the rest of the herd so Luna doesn’t gore anybody.
It’s doing well so far and she’s a great mother. Unfortunately, she is a little wild and we’ll likely sell her after the calf is weaned as we focus on polled, gentle, easy to manage cattle for our farm.
