Alice, one of our Jersey cows had a new calf this afternoon. We bought two Jersey cows last fall. Now we have even more milk for the pigs. In a few days I’ll start milking Alice in the morning, she and her calf will be together all day, separated only at night. I love spring! Everything is bright, fresh and new.
Nobody can go through an endless chain of farm births and growth and harvest - and be subject to nature’s mysteries, bounty, and sometimes harshness - without developing a philosophy of life. -J. Brewer Bottorff
