2012 Calf Watch
Click on the Calf watch link to see if we have any newborn calves to announce!
We generally give the mother and calf 12-24 hours to form a strong bond before we tag and weigh the newborn. If we process the calf too soon, we risk the cow abandoning her calf. If we wait too long, the calf becomes extremely mobile and it could be stressful catching it to tag and weigh. ince a calf is tagged, its information is entered into our database & the calf watch list is be updated. Calves will be named later in the summer by selecting names from this list. To add your name suggestions click here.
