6 th calf born today

Our 6 th calf is born today by our one and only Charolais cow!  Its a couple of hours old and it manage to escape from the bank barn and across the lower barn yard.  When I looked out the laundry room window on the second floor of our house, I could see this white form amongst the reds and blacks of the Limousins. I pushed the heifer across the yard and back into the nice dry barn with  Mama Marley. Its amazing how some calves have so much vigor and will get into trouble right away.
 Marley's  heifer from last year is as big as her. We are waiting for her heat cycle to kick in and she will be AI  as soon as she is ready.
