We turned our cow Bugsy in with the bull on June 1st took him out June 21st when is the soonest she will calve? While I was out there a minute ago I noticed she has a little mucous and her bag is starting to fill out. She never has mucous, and she is just starting to look floppy in the rear. Oh I cant wait, thinking heifer thoughts!!

Windows 7's new calculator will actually calculate dates for you. Just plug in the starting date and add 283 and the due date pops up....Pretty cool.
We have nurse cows, calves, show calves, llamas, pygmy goats, turkeys, chickens, pigs, dogs and cats on our little piece of Heaven.
We are now selling fresh whole milk and mozzarella and Velveeta style cheeses along with fresh eggs.

Hey thanks guys. This is her second calf. I took lots of pictures last year to comapre to. We bought her when she was close to calving last year. She still has a ways to go as far as her udder but she is starting to look closer. Counting the days...
