Took a load of 6 yearlings and 1 cull cow to the sale barn last night. The cow is one who lost her calf this year. Her first calf, 3 years ago required assistance with calving. As we were bringing her into the barn she layed down in the pond, head out, rest of her in. We finally got her out and she calved OK, raised the calf OK. This year we knew she had calved but could not find the calf, nor any evidence of one. We hunted all over but never found her calf. Three weeks later we found the calf drowned in the pond. Figured this cow was a good candidate for culling!
Waiting to be loaded.
