Early this morning before Mr Rook arrived to feed and bed up, Cow 1 had already had her calf, a male bull calf. Both mother and son were doing well when I called in at around 2pm.Then after Mr Rook had finished bedding up and feeding he left to go and work elsewhere – when he returned at dinner time, Cow 5 had also calved, this female heifer calf was still wet when I arrived. The calf was soon up and around sucking milk. Fingers crossed I get their in time to catch the birth on video next time….
