|Vin showed Lacey as a yearling heifer this summer at the county fair|
So needless to say I was really excited when I found her with her calf in the dry lot that morning, especially with it being a heifer. ( The dry lot is the pen where all heifers/cows that are going to calve in the next two months are, it's their vacation spot) . So right when she was born she had her naval dipped with an iodine dip to ensure that it didn't get infected and she was also orally given a immune booster to help jump start her immune system.
|This was taken when Lacey was recovering from her sickness.|
But glad to report that both are doing good, we just have one problem left, BG needs a real name that starts with the letter L for her registration with the American Guernsey Association. They don't always have to have the same first letter as their dam (mother) but on our farm we do it that way so it is a little bit easier to keep family lines in order. Being able to track cows back to numerous generations is incredibly important to all dairy farmers. On our farm we have a record of every cow that has ever been on our farm, when they were born, died, had a calf, and even how much milk they gave.
|She's quite popular because she's so little and loves to cuddle!|
So I'm going to keep track of what happens with little BG but for now I need suggestions for a name that starts with L?!
