Is Brown Cow Pregnant?
This is our second cow. She was in the paddock last September when a bull got to our black cow and was in the paddock around 9 months ago when a bull got in and got to the black cow again and to the neighbours cow, I supose if there is no calf from her within the next week or so she won't be having one again.
She is a big cow, bigger than the black one but younger. Another wait and see thing.
If the new calf survives we will have 4 cows, if the brown cow becomes a mum there will be 5 out there. Too many. But we can't keep the bulls out so there is not much we can do about it. We need a couple of cows to keep the grass down and we do eat them so doing one next winter will get the numbers down a bit.
It is just a worry sometimes. Like the neighbours cow...She died because her calf got stuck. Really she should not have even been pregnant. I complain about our cows but really it is the back neighbours bulls that need to be complained about. And we have...He doesn't care much though.
And I don't complain when I am eating the cows so I supose I can't have it both ways. HoHum...
