Canadian Cow Comes in With a Heifer
For a week I've known the Canadian cow had her calf but couldn't find it. Today when we delivered 10 tons of carrots in the newly groomed and seeded winter feed area, she walked in with a large black heifer who was very frisky but easily tired. She will make a fine addition to the herd with ideal genetics for cross breeding our different lines of whites. Her mother freshened last year on August 18 so fortunately she is cycling earlier in the summer so her calves have a better start on winter.
The driveway to the farm is almost hidden so we solved that problem by planting a 24 foot carrot at the entrance. You can learn more about Wolverine Farm at www.wolverinefarm.com

The Ralph and Maxine progeny have evolved into a family with international roots that include Korea, Scotland, and India. In like fashion, the products of Wolverine Farm have expanded from potatoes and dairy to carrots, beef, eggs, berries and a broad spectrum of products. It has morphed from a sole proprietorship to an umbrella that covers a variety of businesses that market directly, through farmer's markets, and through commercial outlets.
