TRIPLET calves arrived at the neighboring dairy farm, Entzminger Dairy!
We partner with Entzminger Dairy on our farm. In the spring and fall, they bring a group of cattle over to graze on some of our land.
The Entzminger family and the employees on their farm take EXCELLENT care of their cattle and we're proud to work with them. Not only are healthy dairy products for my family made with the milk they produce, but their cattle also help keep our soil fertile to grow better crops.
Pretty great recycling program!
Entzminger Dairy also hosts many local school children each year on farm tours.
You can imagine how excited everyone at the dairy was when these little ones arrived!
|My friend, Bobbi Entzminger, notified me on Facebook of this incredible birth and sent along some photos to share!|
|There are two heifers (girls), numbers 200 and 201. At the dairy, cattle are individually identified with eartags so they can get the best treatment possible.|
To celebrate this special arrival, together with the Entzminger dairy family, I'm hosting a Calf Naming Contest.
In the comment section below, leave your suggestions for the names of these calves (remember: two girls and a boy) and on August 6th, the Entzmingers will choose the winner of this MOOVELOUS prize package which has been so graciously donated by the Midwest Dairy Association!
