calves (and some bull )
A visit to Oakes'
home pasture. Allen is grinding and spreading hay and oat straw with
the bale processor. David hauls the bales. Robert is in another yard
looking after a cow that lost her calf.
About a hundred
and sixty calves have been coming into the world here since March 16,
almost six weeks ago. One was born yesterday.
The cows are
waiting to get at the meal they know is being laid out for them.
Allen opens the gate and here they come...
Most of the calves
accompany their mothers and even sample the fare... How does it compare
with milk, boys and girls?
This little bull
in the middle photo made his appearance yesterday. We hope to get some
pictures of cows giving birth. Come back to this page in case we do...
The last five
photos are of the fathers...
Good work men!!
