We now have 3 new editions to the farm. As I mentioned in a previous blog we have been working with some other Devon breeds to bring some English Devon genetics to the USA. Well last Thursday Bill went to NC to pick up some of the weaned calves from this endeavor. Two are full sisters from a mating etween Tilbrook Cashtiller and Cutcombe Jaunty, both of who are outstanding English Devons. Three other heifers and two bull calves went to our partners at
Thistle Hill Farm in Virginia.
Here is Bill (aka Doc) tattooing and ear tagging before the trip.
And here is one of these outstanding heifers.
When they got to SC they were a bit shy. So, we brought one of our most docile pure breed brood cow, her name is Virginia. And she's helping them get used to the farm. And don't forget you can also see them if you visit us on the 6th Annual Upstate Farm Tour.
Oh yeah. I tried to see if they preferred coffee or tea, they didn't like either.
