First Calf of 2017

Our first calf of the year was born on Thursday, a half black angus bull calf. His mom, Cherokee, is half Jersey, half Hereford. Her first calf was a 3/4 Jersey Heifer. We had bred her AI with Jersey semen. But this time we took her to a friend’s pasture & put her with an Angus bull. That was 9 1/2 months ago. Cows have the same gestation length (pregnancy time) as people.


He’s a handsome guy that will grow up to be a big, delicious steer!


We take good care of our farm animals, and in return, they feed us well.
