Note that so far if its white its a heifer and if its black its a bull. So far 4 heifers and two bulls. We'll see how long that statistic lasts!

#25 evidently delivered during the night and appears the calf never lifted her head- a large heifer. Either coyotes or wolves had already started eating. Mom was crying around there for a couple of days. Evidently there is a grizzly around too. No worry about the leftovers.

Tierra #2 delivered large heifer #31 that looks like she must have been swimming in carrot juice for amnionic fluid. First time that has happened even though they are all eating about 100 pounds of carrots every other day. I'm assuming this will turn white with the first rain? Was about 30 degrees this morning.

#19 dropped our first calf for the Galloway genetics. She hit the ground at 3 PM and by 3:30 was walking around. A large white heifer with black points that got tag #30. Today was also the first day the Canadian geese were in the fields looking for those first sprouts of grass.
