Spring 2018 Calves
Updated: May 19, 2018
It's Spring time here at North Branch Ranch and that means adorable calves! Blue Cheese, a beautiful Galloway heifer, just had her first calf. He's a gorgeous and joyful bull that looks remarkably like his mama, considering he is a Galloway/Commercial cross. Blue Cheese is a fantastic mama and has been taking great care of her first baby. His name is Frisco.
Bull's Eye surprised us all a few weeks ago when she started showing signs that she was about to give birth. She was bred to a commercial bull (Frisco's Daddy) but it wasn't clear that she was pregnant. We're glad to share that she had a beautiful baby heifer. She and mama had a little trouble figuring out feeding, but they worked it out quickly (with a minor bit of bottle feeding to ensure she received the necessary colostrum in time). We named her Mei Mei, which means little sister in Mandarin.
