Buttercup freshened the end of June last year, and I was hoping she would wait at least that long, since we have so much milk! And people are going on vacation now, offering up their milk to the other shareholders while they are gone. I am making cheese twice a week now, getting a bit weary of it.
But I digress. Buttercup and her calf are the centerpiece of this post. It is another boy. So we are raising three bull calves and a heifer calf. We are keeping them on their mothers - makes life easier for the milkers if they don't have to feed calves! And we have so much milk that what better use to put it to than to help us raise four fine head of dairy cattle?
Here are the pics of new calf (Beau) and Mama Buttercup.
