Just like last year, Pretzel is the first cow to birth a calf for the new season. We welcome this sweet little heifer that was born 12/12/2015, she weighed in at 80 lbs., and is the first baby born to our newest herd sire, Renaissance.
Most of the time we name the baby after the mother in an effort to track the bloodlines with easy recall. This time, the Pacific storms that have raged the area for the last two weeks have won out and we decided to name this perky little one ‘Stormy.’
She was all cleaned up by her mother after birth, but the walk to the barn had her very wet and cold. We moved her into a pen with her mom so she would have a chance to dry off. Sitka had her warm, dry and well fed quickly and this new addition to the farm is doing well.
