Jeff had a feeling she would have her calf tonight. He went down to milk and later came back in to tell me she was starting to have the calf-so I got 2 jackets on and went down to the lot to watch!
Feet first-Good sign! This is her first calf-so we wanted to be close if she needed any help. She is half Dexter/half Hereford, so a little on the small side.
She started having a little trouble and not progressing, so Jeff got in the lot with her and helped just a bit.....
And out she came!
Clean up time-YUCK!!!
Mom and calf seem to be doing fine. Sure glad she waited until tonight-it's a good bit warmer than it has been the last few days-it was 23 degrees this morning-but up to low 50's now and low 70s tomorrow. We missed the last 2 days of school because of ice-3 Bad weather days in less than a week-almost unheard of here!
