Last week we brought 2 heifers into the barn to be Baby Watch 9 + 10. However, they were a bit ornery with each other and Ed put them back out.
Today he brought Hoho back in and without much delay, she has had a bull calf. She had trouble getting his head out on her own, so Ed helped by pulling it and I reached in and lubricated his head with good old Dawn dish soap. Once his head was out it took only a minute or two to complete the birth.
She is an attentive mom and I think she likes the taste of Dawn….
