Blackie and Sable

Black Angus cow looking for calf in underbrush.#76 Blackie was acting strangely when we started feeding. She was watching the brush under some big alder trees. It had been apparent for the last couple of weeks that she was getting close to calving and we were certain she was watching a newborn from a distance.

Sure enough, when we got closer to the tree and brush line, Tucked right behind a log that had washed in during high water, we could see an outline of a little calf.

Blackie walked with us right over to the calf so we fed her a slab of hay right next to her baby.

Welcome to the farm Sable, born 5/3/17. She is a healthy heifer that weighed in at 63 lbs.
