Once in the barn, we moved one calf at a time into a squeeze corner and gave it a tagged number for its ear, before returning it to the pen with the two cows and other calves.
Now we watch to match up the baby with the momma by noting ear tag numbers when the little one is nursing.
We will soon be separating some of the cow/calf pairs and need these identification tags to insure that we have the right pairs moved together.
So far we have #94, Plum with her baby Snowcap #17. #162, Opal with her baby Granite #15. And #68, Sapphire with her baby Blue #16.
