#Repost @holtfarms with @get_repost ・・・ If you haven't met him yet, this is Ernie! He was born in September, but there was a little mix up in the field involving two heifers and calves that were born very close together in time and location. Either way, his mama got a little confused about which calf was hers, and long story short, Ernie ended up moving to our house and became our backyard bottle calf. Since then, he has been weaned to a grain and forage based diet, gained several hundred pounds, and has just flat out outgrown his pen. So last week he finally got to load up and head back to the farm. Ernie had become a special part of our home, especially to our kids. They loved helping mix his milk, petting him, and honestly if you think there are many things cuter than a one year old cackling with joy while a baby calf licks his fingers you would be wrong. Bottom line... I was dreading breaking the news to the kids. I had a whole speech prepared about why he needed to go and I was ready. So the net morning when our little girl asked about feeding him, I braced myself and told her that he wasn't going to be living at our house anymore. She was very quiet for a moment when she finally said "Oh, he is going to be so happy to see his mama." Even at 2 years old she understands that Ernie doesn't belong in our backyard and that no matter how well we try to take care of him (and dude had it pretty good), we are a poor substitute for his mama and other cows. For whatever reason, there seems to be this idea that animals aren't well cared for if they are not treated like humans, but the truth is that they have very different needs from us and always will. I am happy that Ernie gets to be back on the farm and do all the calf things, but I am even happier that our kids are learning to put the needs of others first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holtfarms #holtfarms #iamangus #businessbreed #tncattle #tnfarm #cattletales #farmkids #tnmagicmoments #calves #anguscalves #bottlecalf #agchat #beeffacts #agvocate

#Repost @stafford.farms with @get_repost ・・・ Behind every good farm is an even better dog! These girls work so hard each day monitoring all the animals and making sure everyone is safe. They have saved countless life’s because they have ran off coyotes, Fox’s, snakes, hawks, raccoons, possums, & several other predators to the farm animals. #greatpyrenees #jesse #penny #staffordfarms #beef #pork #dairy #signalmtnfarm #tnmagicmoments
