    Baby Hereford

    A young Baby Hereford born today around 6:30 am

    I woke to the news from Dad that one of our four older cattle had just given birth and sure enough we now have a young one.

    We have had cattle for some time but this is our first born on our land we have previously just purchased from the cattle sales.

    Worked fine for me.
    Thats cool. My parents run 110 head of Hereford with a couple of bulls. Gets a bit busy round calving time . Especially fun when you have to round em up through the paddocks to solve the young bull issue
