#CalfWatch14 is upon us and soon on many farms and ranches around the country new born calves will be running around with their cute little fuzzy faces and uncoordinated frolics.
|Don't you just want to tossel her curly fuzz on her head?|
|It would be totally fine by me if he licked my cheek right now.|
Caution: This video is REAL LIFE on our farm shot last year during #CalfWatch13.
I have received several questions in the past year as to what is happening at about the 1:50 mark in the video. Like I mention in the footage, most times cows give birth all on their own but sometimes they need a little help, just as humans do. This particular cow had been trying to push out her calf on her own for awhile and if my dad had not stepped in to help her, the new little calf would have easily died.
In the video you see a calf puller similar to this one.
Also an O.B. chain similar to this one.
