#36 Delivers #73- 5/5/16
#36- one of our red tipped heifers delivered a red tipped calf- #73. She showed up at the feeder and then went off and hid. When I found them the calf jumped up and outran its mother. This will be one that got away. If it is a boy I will name him Moses. Like the Jewish women that the Egyptian midwives reported were "lively" so that they delivered before they could get to the scene and catch the babies. That will be the reputation of #36. I will reserve the tag and put it in next time the herd goes through the squeeze chute. Will have to determine gender the hard way- by long distance observation.
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
Three Generations- 1987
Four Generations- 1999
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.
