First Calf of Spring

What a glorious day it is today in Gippsland. The sun is shining, the farmer down the road has made his first cut of hay and we have just welcomed our newest calf to the farm!

Meet Magpie our little Belted Galloway bull born yesterday (7/9/14) to Sambuca. He is moving well and has a lovely belt around the middle!

Mother is doing fine too and it was good to see that a young heifer lived up to the Galloway’s reputation for easy calving.

We are looking forward to seeing how he grows.
