He was delivered today. The first calf of the 2012 season. He is a Jersey calf. He is light brown with some very nice white spots on his side.
The photo really does not do him justice. It’s hard to get a good photo in the dark barn when the calf won’t be still.
They say that the Holsteins bring more money at sale time, but I really like the look of the Jersey better.
No bottle for him tonight, that’s already been taken care of, but the work begins tomorrow… early… Welcome to warm bottles, and cold 5am mornings.
