Sometimes things go the way you would like. I know it's seldom.
I omitted the best part. I had a couple of heifers in that field and they calved on their own, no problems, short labor and got everything cleaned up. They are the best mothers and have the biggest bags I have ever had in 30 years of raising cattle.
One is a bull and the other heifer. The bull either likes the heifer's mother's milk better than his, or he's just greedy. The surrogate mother lets him nurse her while she is having her breakfast. Couple of days ago the heifer was nursing and he came up and knocked her out of the way and had his fill.....mother just kept eating. Ha! Heifer is growing off as good as he is so I guess there are enough groceries to go around.
I used to have one of those lift top metal feeders where half a dozen calves could enter each side. Soon realized that the cows would line up at the entrances and not let the babies in to eat. Guess they were mad cause they couldn't get to the feed. Ha!
So now I put a shallow feeder and water trough along the fence and make a suitable pen using one strand of hot wire to keep the larger animals out. That gives the babies access from 3 directions and works great.
