Meet the new girl!
She is a Brown Swiss dairy breed. She is a young cow that had a calf early this past Fall. She is currently in milk and is pregnant and due in August. She is transitioning well to her new home and family. The switch from a grain to grass diet is going smoothly. When I first met her, she was calm and shy. Since coming to the farm, she has shown herself to be curious and bold, already a leader, and a bit of a trouble maker. She has walked over a few fences and encouraged the herd to give our community garden a haircut, but she loves attention. She enjoys being brushed and is patient with new people trying to milk her.
Join one of the activities going on at the farm and get to see this new girl!
