Calves 
This calf doesn't seem to know what to make of the chicken going by.  A lot of times the new mothers won't even let the chickens in the pen with thier babies.  It's real funny to see a cow chase a chicken off.  Taken 2/9/2006.

It might look warm out, but it was 5 below  when this picture was taken.  The calves were enjoying the sun against the white buildings.  I'll have to admit, the strong sun felt good.  Taken 2/17/2006.

The Heifers and their calves that are back to their home are using this rock formation for shelter from the nasty wind and cold weather nature is inflicting on us right now.  This calf was loath to come out of the shelter of the rocks with his mom to feed.  I can't blame him.  Taken 2/16/2006.

This calf is just under two hours old.  His mom had cleaned him up and he's had his first meal.  I love it when mom manages these things all on her own with no help from me.  Taken 2/6/2006.

On Oct 24th all these calves were tagged with eartags like the Government wants for the Herd Identification System.  Less than two months later you can see the calf in front has lost it's tag.  How is this supposed to work if they are losing the tags this quick?  Short answer, it isn't.  Taken 12/4/2005.
