54 will be the first of our six heifers to calve. She is due mid January and she can’t wait. She is already rather large with calf and when she lays on her side her feet kind of stick out from her body. When I come across her laying like this she generally twists her head around to look at me as if to say “Get this thing out of me!”
Thus far, 54 has been one of our easiest keepers but she can have some attitude. 54 is a very dominant member of the herd. When grouped with the other heifers, it is easy to see that she is the boss of the group! NP and I have even suspected her of bossing Abby around on occasion. She is currently Abby’s only roommate and a lesser heifer might find herself pretty henpecked living with ‘ol Abby but 54 holds her own!
