Jane – 5 months

October 28, 2010

Jane is growing fast.  Not much to say except she is still getting milk replacer twice a day and is on full pasture and free choice hay and minerals.

Grass stains on her knees and looking a little woolly with her winter hair coming in, more cow than calf.  Nothing like this little 2 day old baby in the video.

    What a doll!! I bet she still gets her lovin from you every day too! I can just imagine giving her a daily massage and scratchin that gorgeous face….I have a couple that were raised just the same way and now we call them “Big Babies”..boy do they grow up! 😉

    Jane is looking great! She’s kind of at that awkward stage, so is our Angus steer. They have that more mature grown up look and their bodies are growing and filling in, but their minds are all baby. We laughed and laughed yesterday, because “Hoss” was trying to play with the dogs, he wasn’t exactly sure if they wanted to play or herd and the dogs weren’t entirely sure of how to act at all! Finally Casino( our Aussie) got down in the front end and played, then ran and came back and would play some more. Hoss was doing that deep low bawling that calves do when playing and running and bucking about. It made my day :o) BTW, Hoss was 5 months old at the beginning of the month and we estimate he weighs 275-300lbs, still on the replacer, twice a day, grazes, eats hay and enjoys his time with the suppliment minerals. Sure glad he’s halter broke and enjoying human attention :o)

    She looks healthy and lovely. She is going to be a wonderful milker! Just goes to show what good pasture and careful early care can do.

    I agree, they sure do grow fast!

    Thought of Jane this morning, wondering how she was doing and here’s a post. Not seen my calf, nor cows, nor pigs, nor chickens in 2.5 weeks. :((

    I’d really like to see our gilt before she goes off to the butcher, but I won’t be mobile that soon. :(( She’s so cute running around with her floppy ears and wagging tail.

    Have to rely on reports on how they are doing. Maybe once I can get around some, I’ll make a trip to the barn.

    Meanwhile I’ll enjoy pics and reports from your farm.

    She is gorgeous and looks just as big and filled out as my heifers who were nursing at that age did.

    Jane looks wonderful! Buddy is 1 month today and was locked in the pen for the first time tonight. I’m ready to get me some num num milk tomorrow. He’s been a pig lately. And hopefully we’ve solved the smell problem. No sweet vernal grass for a couple days. XXX Fingers crossed. 🙂

    Great to see such a well cared for calf – clean has become the exception rather than the rule.

    Jane is definitely a beauty!
