Newest Calf

Here is a picture of our newest calf. This Momma wasn't supposed to have a calf. She was a twin with a boy. Those are called Free Martins and they usually are meaty enough to give as much meat as a boy cow. Even though Free Martins are female, because of the extra boy hormones they get en utero, they usually can't have babies. But, she got pregnant. And, Jon (my husband) was blessed enough to notice the event. So, here nine months later is our little calf. She looks like she will be a good Momma.
