So, Who Takes Care of the Calf?
The short, simple answer to this question is of course, the cow. That’s her job. As cattlemen, taking care of the cow is our job. The answer to taking care of the cow is neither short nor simple.
The calf depends entirely on the cow from conception until weaning and given the proper environment she is capable of providing nearly everything the calf needs. If we understand the cow’s needs we can provide for the needs of both her and the calf.
