Momma Moos and Baby Moos

All baby mammals are adorable and these little moos are no exception.  Does anyone know if it is typical for a calf to but their head against the udder when nursing or was this just one frisky calf? I had to wince a bit every time that calf butted mom’s udder so much that she twitched and lifted her leg.  Ouch!

    The calves are sooo cute! It’s fun to watch them romp around.

        I’ve never liked liver, so I don’t have to swear it off. I’m not a big fan of veal either.

        I was afraid you’d see me as just another piece of meat. I hate when that happens!

    She looks a typical Jersey cow with an AI calf…. Jerseys are known for good high cream milk and are often used for AI as the calves get good growing milk from Ma Moo…. butting the udder is quite normal

      Thanks for the info and from the looks of the milk that was dribbling down the little ones chin it was some good and rich milk.
