~It’s A Girl!!!!~

Even the coldest of weather can’t stop the natural cycles of birth!

The kids found this fresh born heifer in the barn, wet and shivering.  She was carried into the basement to be warmed up.  After a good morning in the house and some nice warm colostrum she was ready to be returned to her new home.  Her name has to start with an A due to her blood lines and there is still a good debate as to which name it will be.  It’s a toss-up between Amore and Ariat.  She is so pretty and will be a nice addition to the farm.

It is so cold here, hard to believe anything can survive such temperatures.  She is snug inside of a home-made bale hut in the barn and is thriving so far.  As always new life is always welcome and enjoyed over and over again through the years on our farm!

She is a mix of Ayrshire, Guernsey, Jersey and Holstein!   I bet she’ll be an amazing milk cow some day!!

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?

    You had me fooled with your headline. I think you should call her Tex because of the state map on her forehead. She sure is a beauty. -Rick
