Snot (Apparently his mother's name was Booger)
And Cocoa Puff
We bought four bull calves from a local dairy farmer this weekend. Cocoa Puff is 2 weeks old, Melvin and Harvey are 3 weeks old, and Snot is a month old. Cocoa Puff is the only one who is still on a bottle, the other three are drinking from pails. Our daughter thought it was hilarious that daddy was bringing them home in the back of the truck. She told him, "Oh daddy, you're just like mommy bringing home all those animals in your truck, she must be rubbing off." :) So sometimes as a farmer you have to improvise!!
The last couple of years, I have not kept a running list of how much it costs to raise a bull calf from when we bring them home to when we take them to butcher. This year I've started a spreadsheet. The milk replacer is leftover but we will need another bag but I'm not entirely sure what the current cost is. So currently, we have $100 into four bull calves.
Even the lil' one got in on the action!
