Randy put the calf into the back of the pickup to take it away. Now, every time we come into the pasture, she follows the pickup around. We can hear her bawling from the house. It just doesn't seem fair that such a good mama lost her baby. But that is life - and death - on a farm.
The snow did make for chilly rounds during the Saturday checks of the heifers and the cows. Besides the death in the pasture south of the house, we had another heifer calve and two other live births from cows.
