This weekend, Nora delivered our first calf of 2016; a little heifer. Many more calves should be arriving soon and we are looking forward to having lots of milk, Greek yogurt and butter again in the near future.
If Nora looks familiar, that's because she's the cow on the left in our header photo!
This is the month when the calves start to arrive. Several of our milk cows are "bagging up", so time is getting close. After our break from milking this winter, we are eager to get back to work milking cows and making Greek Yogurt, butter, etc. Once we can get a minimum of 100 gallons of milk from our cows, we'll be able to process again. Thanks for your patience!
Here's a photo of "Rojo" mugging for the camera. She's one of our heifers expecting her first calf. She had a lot of practice going through the milking barn last season, so she should be calm as she joins "the big girls" on the milk line this spring.
