sun shine and calves
I took the photo of the calves out the bathroom window. The cripple calf lays around most of the time.We will butcher the cripple calf but if I have my way we will not butcher the Holstein heifer. I am a farmers daughter and you don't waste a heifer calf that will make a good cow some day.
If I am not around the decision to butcher her would be up to Kelly and he is enough of my son that she will live to old age. The calves are putting on weight . I am sure it is all the grain we are feeding them. They get 4 large coffee cans full of feed a day that is 2 for each calf.
