If you follow us on Facebook (which, mind you, ALL of you should ! 😉 ) then you would know that one of Kel’s parents’ cows gave birth to a little girl calf in early November, who they named Kymbra.
She will be another breeder for them.
Anyway last week Angelica, the cow we went halvsies in with Kel’s parents (you can read about that here), also gave birth to a little girl calf, her name being Kelaura. Looking at that name you’re probably thinking that it’s just Kel and Laura put together (with only one ‘L’). Well you would be right. Kel’s parents name their cows like this:
- Breeding – their child and their partner’s name put together (Kelaura)
- Meat – something to do with beef (Chuck)
However they only have three children and Kel is the youngest so I’m not sure what they are going to do for the next breeders that are born…
Anyway here is picture of Kelaura:
Yep, she looks pretty much the same as Kymbra. Though still very cute 🙂
Not only are we excited to have another breeder that we own half of, we are also excited because when a cow has a calf, what does that mean? Milk!
We hope to start milking Angelica in the next week or so (you have to wait until all of the Colostrum has come through) and we will let you know how that goes. Homemade butter, yoghurt, cheese and ice-cream here we come!!!
