Consistent with past summers (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019), we are currently hosting 3 yearling heifers on our pastures over the summer.
The cows so far have been very friendly. They often follow us around the edge of the pasture when we walk around.
Their names are Selina (with the white face) and Ann and Danielle are the 2 red angus cows. Selina has been the most inquisitive and approachable, followed by Ann and then Danielle is the most shy.
We’ll see how they develop. They are getting some supplemental grain, but not as much as the cows last year – we’ll see how this affects how friendly and responsive they become before they head home at the end of the summer.
