Well. Upon further inspection, I think she was babysitting the one on its feet when she had hers. No umbi on the standing calf and lots of milk poo. The one laying is definitely hers. She was still wet.

My guess is, the older one is Berthas...
Bertha will be going to town later. This will be her last job for me. She getting older and didnt raise the orphan I gave her several months ago.
I expect she calved about a week or so ago. Today was the first day to see it.

Here's mama September 12th....
Pre calving.

And my lil bug eyed Rosy. Jersey/angus mini whatever she is. She was bred to Big Sexy also. Tho I was worried he was too much bull for her. She done it tho! Bout a 60lbr by my calibrated eye ball.
Rosy's last calf paid for herself and then some. Shes hit a home run with me. I've been hit or miss getting a second calf out of a one n done. Shes done well. Trouble free both times. I'll give her another shot next year most likely. Shes about 8 years old now.

And the lil red baldy off that pair I bought a month or so ago. Mama is an 8 yr old blue roan kinda.
Looks a bit like Ethyl but bigger and blue.
This calf could almost pass for hereford...

Super impressed with Big Sexy and the 2nd group!

9 of 13 on the ground

Calving began 9/14

2 more should be along shortly. Matter of fact, I think my hereford cow is off somewhere with hers. She didnt come up this evening.
Went to tag some tonight and had to make a new tag.
107 had hers yesterday I'm thinking.
And 104 looks dangerously close...

The other 2 calved early December last year. I'm hoping they move up a month. They were not 1st calf heifers. That was their 2nd calf, so maybe I'll get lucky. They were all in great shape when I put the bull with em.

We will see....

Guess I should pull Big Sexy out and bring him home. Then put him back over there in December again. Seemed to be some sort of magic to that.....

Only pic today. 107's brand new bull. Hope to see a full blood hereford calf tomorrow!

Took Big Sexy in for an exam today.
Passed his BSE and ready to go!
He weighs 1650 lbs. 450lbs more than Richard did.

Anyway. I pulled him outta there and brought him home til he goes back mid December. I may wait til just b4 Christmas this time.

Super impressed with this hereford bull!!

And 104 had hers the other day....
She's the cow I took the horns off of.
Corriente? Idk! Shes too dang big for a Corriente.
Calf is mostly red. Just a spot or 2 of white on its face. Didn't get close enough to tell if its a bull or heifer. I haven't decided if this mama is all bluff or not. But I don't aim to find out either. The way she paws at the ground is just something else. She will settle down in a few weeks tho. I think I got a couple crappy pics. Here we go...
