After she was born, there was the regular task of figuring out who birthed her.
When a cow has a calf, she usually has - ready for it? - afterbirth. That's a good indicator. She also usually has a really full udder. The term for this that Kris uses is 'bagged up.'
But, since the calf was early, the cow's udder wasn't that huge. But they were able to pick her out eventually.
So - a heifer. She drank. They found the cow. Seems like a great start to the calving season to me! Let's hope for a winning record.
