It’s raining today. That’s good. We had a rough day with the cow herd.  After a wonderful streak of tagging 6 to 9 healthy calves every day since April 24th, we had the misfortune of losing 3 calves in the last couple days.  Two were unexplained deaths and one was deformed.  We were having such a fantastic run with the majority of our herd calving in 18 days.  We have approximately 30 head to calve out still and the calving is starting to slow, tagged just one calf yesterday.  Hoping we can wrap up the calving season without anymore losses.  The cloudy, gloomy weather just adds to the sad losses found today.  The rain is much needed though.

This poor momma cow is searching for her deceased calf. Death can be so sad.
