Jane – One More Month Crossed Off
Not a whole lot to report on the Jane front, her bag is changing slowly, and she is starting to look a little pregnant… . It’s hard to tell with cows, they carry pregnancies like people, (everyone is different) and until she goes through the entire cycle I won’t really know if she shows a lot, or not in her pregnancies. She’s a big framed girl and she may be able to hide her calves well.
I continue with half-hearted “training” – mostly just feeding her on a schedule; leading her out to pasture in the morning, and letting her in at night. As it stands now, her routine is exactly what it will be when I am milking, sans a calf in the picture. Her stall where I feed her is where I will milk her. She feels safe there, and in turn she will feel safe leaving her calf there when the time comes.
She’s starting to look like a regulation cow to me. What do you think?
