Taking good pictures of small calves can be difficult, but this may be the best Doc bull calf that we have had to date. The dam, #43205262 weighed 1360lbs after calving, and is line bred to a cow that I bought as a heifer, and lived until she was 17 years old. In addition, her first calf lived until she was 15 years old. These two are this cow’s maternal grandmother and great grandmother.
The calf is four days old, born April 4, and weighed 88.5 lbs. at birth.
