We are all very excited to have two new arrivals on Darling Downs Farm. Our Highland Cow “Mildred” had a little bull calf early last week. I’m not sure what name the children are going to give to him but I’m sure none of us will be able to remember it!!
I’m sorry about the quality of the photo but she wouldn’t let me get close enough to take a decent one.
The second new arrival came early this morning. Our jersey milking cow had a heifer calf. Again no name but will keep you all updated.
This cow at least allowed me to get pretty close for a photo but was still quite wary of me.
We have already been milking our Friesian cow since she calved a couple of months ago. I have been making cheese a few times a week, with the rest of the milk going to our piglets. But now that we are going to double our volume my husband will separate some so that I can make butter from the cream.
