New generation of future cows is growing. These five are bred to calve starting April next year.

The young momma is doing well with her calf. Lack of patience sometimes, but the little one learned how to nurse from behind when mom isn't in the mood.

Really like this heifer. Nice udder, great character and very good family history. Her dam has a heifer this yeat, which also shows good replacement qualities.

Have one more heifer calved today. Has a lovely limousinex heifer. Young mom has lots of milk. 289days gestation. Another heifer is on 288th day, but it seems that she'll carry her calf for a little bit longer.

Heifer from the first calved heifer is already a big girl. Fun fact that so far we had six calves from this one AI limousine bull and five are heifers, and no doubt that bull is a very easy calved one. Only one calf, which I'd consider normal and all other were tiny.

Looking nice. Bet you are glad to see the end of the muddy winter. How is the veterinary work going?
Winter was somewhat acceptable. Not that much of mud, some really cold weather, but the spring has it all, mud, rain, snow, wind, etc. Hope it will be better soon.
Mostly doing AI job at home now, and a couple cases to treat at one farmer. It needs time for more people to know about the new vet.

Other two previously born heifers are doing well. It's nice to see first time moms raising nice calves.
