Well we made it through February-THE LOVE MONTH! It isn’t just love month for us humans, it’s also love month for our cattle too due to it being calving season – A Mother’s Love!
It was again a roller coaster month as far as the temperature in Cotton County as well as all over this great state: as low as 19 degrees for the high one day to another having a high of 79 degrees. That doesn’t make for an easy calving season with that big of a variety of temperatures. As farmers and ranchers, we have to be out and about no matter how cold, or hot, and make sure that the livestock are all okay! It is even more important during the calving season to make sure that we don’t lose any of your our crop, especially with the cattle prices these days!
There is nothing like seeing a newborn baby calf. It’s a special privilege to see the mother licking to make sure that her baby is all cleaned up and ready to start life. She is also very protective to make sure that the calf is safe – A Mother’s Love!
I know that this isn’t much of our farm life, but we are just getting started! Hope that you all are staying warm! Talk to you soon!
