Harper our new Beltie

Harper '12

Blair has sucessfully given us a new heifer,Harper.  Her namesake, Harper Lee,  author of To Kill A Mockingbird  is a favorite of my daughter and farm caretaker when I am away. After being on imminent "calf alert" for the last few weeks, Harper was calved on May 19th,when we were away. Like our other calves, Harper spends alot of time sleeping at the egde of the field.  I have moved the cows to the big pasture in an effort to teach her to stay inside electric fence. Lack of a heat cycle and an improvement in her outward appearance are the only signs that indicate that Penny is pregnant.
