Who Wants to Feed a Calf?
Looks like the two or three times a day milk and some starter, high protein calf feed will be the routine for the next few months. Come Back plays with the other calves but when he hears the “Mule” or the truck he leaves the herd and mows all the way to the fence to greet you. BESS never did accept him. Neighbor children have come feed him and parents with cameras. Two vacation renters have taken us up on wanting to help feed this calf. (see short clip video) He’s the size of a large dog now and we “lick” him by petting as the mother cows would when he is nursing. When he’s done, he walks away satisfied and you can hear the milk sloshing in his belly. It’s soooo darn cute.
