calves and beans

That heifer we thought didn’t settle last fall, because she was riding everything in the pasture this spring, dropped a little bull calf last Sunday; we’ve seen it happen before, but we are still surprised when an animal which shows unmistakable signs of going into heat turns out to be bred.  Since Daisy, the fat Jersey/Ayreshire cross, calved on Friday, we now have two new heifers in the milking line-up.  Happily, they are both mannerly in the stanchion, and keep their feet where they belong.  The pintos we planted for a cover crop on two tenths of an acre that had been in potatoes, are up now despite the heat and lack of rain — pintos germinate very reliably.
