Having seen how much calves are bringing, and because we have plenty of pasture and hay, and because it's raining money around here lately... I made the decision that we should buy a cow. Not a milk cow this time, though. I suggested to Cliff that we should perhaps go to a few auctions and look for a bargain.
Of course, that's a little "iffy". You don't know where the animals come from or what problems they might have.
So Cliff told his brother we might be looking for a cow, and he asked what sort of cow. Cliff relayed the question, and I said, "Something that's already bred."
Phil called back later and said he had a couple we could pick from.
Well, we chose the older one. She's bigger, she's proved herself as a mother, and she's visited here before. Meet Babe. She'll be coming home next Monday.
