WW: Mamas and brand new baby beef

With the entrance of September comes many things; back to school, autumn weather, harvesting and for us, newborn baby beef calves.  Mid September is about the time when our mama beef cows begin to have their babies. 

We took a drive out the other day to check up on how progress was coming along.

All of our beef cows have been moved down the hill to the flat area to have their babies.  We have only spotted a few babies thus far. 

Here's one.  She was so very curious of the big camera pointed in her direction.

And if you look close, you can see this mama decided to stick her tongue out at the camera.

After the mamas calve, they'll breed with the bulls from October - April (who have been patiently waiting for the return of their mamas), graze, nurse their new born calves, and wait to be moved again in April.

Driving out to check the beef cows and newborn calves is one of my favorite things to do on the ranch, stay tuned for more photos.
