I've haven't been able to access this board all week!

Yes, we have a little bull, born Sunday evening. Seems to be doing quite well, he's taken to the bottle with no problem.

The cow seems to be doing just fine also, heavy producer. I ended up locating a used portable milker, milking 2 goats for 2 years didn't do the job of preparing the hands for her! Having carpel tunnel doesn't help either.

This girl is giving 4 gallons a day, her previous owner had said to expect 3.

We're bringing home a 3 week old orphan beef heifer this weekend, and will raise the 2 together, him for 6-8 months, her for a year.

(BTW, this little guy's name is "Porterhouse" and the heifer will be T-Bone")
