The Cattle Herd

Pin It

This page contains links to all the posts about the cows, calves, heifers, and bulls. If you’d like to see a cattle round-up, newborn calves, or some stern looking bulls, this is the place for you. So put on your cowboy hat and boots, belt out your best “YEE-HAW” and enjoy our life with the cattle from the comfort of your easy chair. And you don’t even have to be careful where you step.

Some quick definitions for you:

  • Cow: a female who has had more than one calf
  • Calf: a baby less than a year old
  • Heifer: a young female over one year old who has not had her first calf
  • Steer: a male that has been castrated before reaching maturity (these are raised for beef)
  • Bull: a male over a year old

Just click on each title below, and a new window will open for that post.
