Mooove in Ready (kind of)





Sap House Bill and I finished up the roof on the Cow Shed East a couple of weeks back. I wanted to get it done so that I could separate last years calves from their mothers so that the cows could get a little down time before they started calving again this spring. There is still quite a bit of work to finish it, but with the Cluck Truck strategically placed to block the wind it will work for this winter.

Our neighbor Todd came up to help me sort the cows from the calves. Then he came back again the next day to do it again after I realized that highly motivated calves will jump a 4 foot gate, especially if they are starting out on the uphill side.
Anyhow, the goal was for the Cows to have a couple of months as dry cows before calving, but 3 days after the weaning one of them calved. She had a nice little heifer calf.
