At First I Thought It Was a Trash Bag

When I went out to move the cows to a fresh paddock on Sunday morning I spotted what I thought was a trash bag laying on the ground. When I got closer it turned out not to be a trash bag at all but a mostly white heifer calf. We have a few cows with a fair amount of white on them, like the one in the back of the photo, but they were all sired by a bull who had an entirely white back. The parents of this calf look like your typical white face Hereford. Genetics sure can be fun.

Wow, that is one pretty calf! We had a sold cream-colored one last year, out of a Simmental cow and an all-black bull. This year that same pair had a black calf. Like you said, genetics are fun :)

That is a pretty calf and surely genetics can be a lot of fun. Have you tried the site They manufacture pasture pumps that dont use any electricity. It really great and simple to use product. I would encourage to check their site for more information.
