Salers calf in spring
Ouganda, Breton mare was born in 2002 on the farm, given birth the 12th saturday of May of a foal, Tintin.
Iris, Breton mare was born in 1996 on the farm, given birth the 11th friday of May of a filly : Tania
We are in full period of calving. Nearly 70 calves at March 20 (spring). That gives work, but all occurs well, thanks to this breed which is the salers, I can nevertheless sleep. Indeed, most of the time I arrive quietly at the cattle shed to clean and make to suck small calves and oh surprised new born!!
They are formidable these salers; they make their calf all alone, because they do not like that they are supervised. That makes it possible not to be always behind, even if once the calf born one puts it in a park with his/her mother so that it can lick it and that the feed can to him.
Next topicality ....
