Last Monday, Dan had to go out of town for work.  He wasn't sure if he'd be gone for the day or for the better part of the week.  While I am very comfortable with all the animals, things always seem to go a bit goofy when I'm here alone.  I...

Our long-awaited arrival is here!  Our heifer Molly, who came to us as a bottle calf three years ago, had her first calf Tuesday.  On a whim, I'd walked out to check her one more time before going in the house to get ready for a birthday party. ...

Kelsey, (the red, horned cow pictured) is 17 years old this year.  That may not seem old to you.  But the average age of a cow is 6 years old.  Most cows are culled at or before age 8.  A 10 year old producing cow is amazing! So,...

It's raining again

All About Molly

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Thursday January 29, 2009   -   By Teresa

Although I grew up on a farm, I never owned a cow until Molly came into our lives in late May 2007.  She was just a day or two old at the time, and had been born via Caesarean section to a neighbor's cow.  After all that trouble her...
