Our Angus/Murray Grey heifer “Black Betty” delivered a lovely Piedmontese girl early this morning (or lat last night). We have named her “Bianca”. Bianca looks healthy, and there were no calving issues. Bianca had well arrived by the time I did my calving beat just before 6:00am this morning.
Tony was born yesterday, delivered by a Simmental Cow – #38. He is a healthy boy – and seems quite happy. The photos are not great – taken early this morning.
Our Simmental cow “55” delivered a healthy ET girl on Tuesday. We have not weighed her yet (our scales are not working). However – she is a solid girl. “55” had no calving issues though – it was very quick. That’s two girls in a row! Cool!
