Meet Smidge, the Holstein Jersey Dairy cow. Smidge is getting close to her due date of 10/12/12 and yesterday started showing my signs that she was going into labor with her second calf. I wanted to show you guys the miracle of birth from start to finish so I started taking pictures each time I checked on her. When she had her ultrasound by the vet about 7 months ago we found out she is supposed to be having a bull calf. I am excited for this calf to come because not only is Smidge one of my favorites she is bred to a Normande bull and I am looking forward to my first Normande calf. Norma is half Normande and she has me sold on the breed. If you want to learn more about Normande cows check out this link.
Sorry if you were expecting this post to include a photo of a brand new calf. It doesn’t and trust me I want to see that calf more than all the rest of you combined. So when do you think she will calve? Her due date is the 10/12/12. Leave your guess on what day and time you think she will finally have that calf, the person with the closest guess will win a super secret super awesome prize!
