Life on the Farm Nov & Dec 2017

Thu, Nov 9th, 2017

Here is some information & updates from November & December 2017.

Giving a Helping Hand

Calves are born on the farm all year round.

Typically, a cow is able to calf without any assistance from the farmer.

However, sometimes the mother requires a helping hand, which we are happy to give. 

This act is called "pulling a calf".

Only a few moments later, we had a healthy bull calf.

Corn Harvest

November continued to be a busy time in our corn fields.

On the 7th the last of the corn crop was harvested.
