In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.

Waiting on Spring calves

Yes...we are waiting. And waiting...

We have 2 jersey cows that are holding on. One's belly is hanging like a bell. She is a bit older and always gets huge & so does her udder, but it has not ballooned yet. Once it does, calving is imminent. She will have a milking shorthorn×. The other is young. This is her 2nd calf. She is still quite small, but anyone would be next to the big balloon beside her. Haha! She will either have a female specific jersey or an Angus× calf. Hopefully neither have little bulls.

I think they are in competition to see who can hold on the longest. "Survivor Jersey," who knew?
