Calves Are The Future

cow and calf

There's not much better to happen on a dairy farm than having a new heifer calf born.  This one was really good because the cow needed no assistance with the birth and the calf, after the first few wobbly steps, immediately began nursing. With hard work and a little bit of luck this calf will grow up to join the milking herd just like her mother.

Caring for and nurturing calves is one of the most important jobs on a dairy farm. Research shows that how well we raise her will impact her potential milk production.  With that in mind, we will do all we can to help her do her best because calves are the future.
