7/3/17 "Calf Day"

Today we purchased 43 calves from several Wisconsin dairy farms. The  calves are all less than 3 days old. Calves are vaccinated, ear tagged, feed, and placed in individual calf hutches.  "Calf Day" as we call it is a very long and busy day.

7/4/17 "First AM Feeding"

Alarm goes off at 4:15 am. This is the calves second feeding at our farm. The calves are still being taught to drink from bottles which is a fun the first time but quickly becomes work after 43 calves. We have to get up bright and early to finish so we can make it to our day jobs by 7:00 am.

7/5/17 "Bottlelicious"

The calves have now mastered drinking out of the bottles. For the most part bottles can be placed in the bottle holders and the calves will take of the rest. Today we got to sleep in until 5:00 am.
