Well, our harvest season just keeps getting better. Yesterday Jason had a “funny feeling” that he should go check on Daisy, our dairy cow. So the kids all loaded up in the truck and drove over to the pasture where Daisy found her boyfriend. At first, Jason panicked because Daisy looked like she had lost the big belly we saw her donning not two weeks ago. But then, up popped a head out from under a tuft of grass.
We still were not sure that this was Daisy’s calf, so Blaze walked toward the little bull and he ran back to his Mama. We were happy to find out that she had calved two days ago and both mom and calf are doing well. We even watched the little calf munching on some grass.
Any birth on a sustainable farm is always a happy moment. But this moment has been a long time coming. We have been trying to get Daisy pregnant for over two years and finally she is a momma again. Now let’s hope we can be patient enough to wait a few weeks to get fresh milk, cream and butter! Just look at that udder!
