calves on the homestead
December 1, 2022
When these photos were taken, we had snow, but it has since melted just before the Thanksgiving holiday. The top photo is of Rose Red, she will be one we will breed for meat on our homestead. Rose is a Milking Shorthorn and Devon cross. Our black calf #25 is one we will be butchering next year for meat. The middle photo is Lucy who is a Jersey heifer that was born here on our homestead this past August. We are not sure our plans for her quite yet, right now she is being weaned from her momma and a new calf has taken her place, one that we purchased from a local dairy farm. We name the ones that we are keeping.
I have tried to find time to post on the blog, and read blogs, but life has been just so busy for us here. Thanksgiving was wonderful here spent with family. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends.
