Feeding A Bottle Calf

A little addition to yesterday’s post:

Here’s a short video showing Harland feeding  little “Harland”, as his new owners named him,  his last bottle with us before he goes to his new home.  Have your speakers turned up so you can hear the cute little noises he makes.  He was only about 24 hours old here.



His new owners, Matt and Mindy, say he is “always so bright-eyed and ready for his bottles”.

We’re so glad he’s happy and doing well.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Sweet video!
    I think I’ve mentioned in my comments here before that I grew up across the highway from a dairy barn.
    This may be hard to believe, but when I saw that, I could actually SMELL that barn stall!

    So precious. I grew up on a cattle/beef farm in southeastern South Dakota. There was a dairy farm about a mile away where we’d buy our milk. I love the sweet smell of the barn. I also love the smell of a sweaty horse. I say that to people who have never lived in the country, let alone on a farm, and they look at me like I’m crazy! I don’t mind though. My heart aches for the country and farm life. Thank you for sharing your life and pictures!
