“Bottle Baby” – Hello, Calving Season!

Cattle don’t usually give birth to twins, and we’ve found that it is best to leave just one calf with its momma, and take the other one away. This one will be bottle fed until a new mother can be found for him. He’s always very insistent and you have to be careful! He will butt you and the bottle, a natural action which would stimulate milk in his mother’s udder… but, it can bruise you if you don’t watch out! Check out http://www.reddirtinmysoul.com for more action on the ranch!
