Brand New Baby Calf

<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;">
We never know what we might find on any given day, going&nbsp;to work with Dominic.&nbsp; This morning, as we were feeding the Dry Cows (cows that are not milking at the moment) I happened to look over and&nbsp;spotted a&nbsp;Mama cow with some afterbirth discharging........&nbsp;which can only mean there's a baby somewhere close by.&nbsp; This type of thing&nbsp;can be&nbsp;a&nbsp;normal happening for Dominic to find, but the kids and I are not&nbsp;usually around during the school year to go to work with Dominic.&nbsp;&nbsp; We certainly have been enjoying our summer with&nbsp;these daily adventures.</div>

What a cutie!&nbsp;&nbsp;The healthy calf&nbsp;was only about five or six hours old and had been licked clean and was dry and fluffy.&nbsp;</div>

Normally, during the winter,&nbsp;the cows are brought into the calving barn to give birth but&nbsp;during the summer they are born outside, like this one.</div>
