This is Alpha. She's our first heifer calf. She's a little black Angus calf. Guessing her weight to be in the mid 60's. She was a week early, so ignore the condition of the barn. This evening it's bedded down with some deep beautiful straw. (heck, I was even considering staying out there it looked so nice.
Sorry for the quality of the photos, all I had at the time was my cell phone.
Smrobs- These are commercial cows so we don't keep any as bulls...BUT having said that, we bought two new bulls that are registered and are looking at getting a registered heifer and then any bull calf from them would stay a bull and be sold later.
Indyhorse- Yeah..he had a pretty big head and needed a bit of assistance to come into this world. But I'll say he was quick. Whereas Alpha took a couple of hrs to get up and moving around, Goliath took maybe a 1/2 hr to be sitting and a hr to start nursing!
Both of these calves are full angus. Our bulls are simmental, while a few of the heifers are angus. We run a simmental/sim-angus herd.
