I’ve officially started calving!
My first baby arrived early Sunday morning, with my only complaint being that it was a slow birth.
I had seen the water bag at 1:30 a.m., which normally means a calf should be coming soon. And since my barn camera is not working, I made trips back to the barn about every half-hour.
Finally, at 4:45 a.m., the cow gave three or four pushes and out came a nice little heifer!
This was the cow that I had rescued on her back a couple of weeks ago and it is her second calf, so calving this early is great.
