Gulleywood’s first Dexter calf!!
On Friday the 21st December, Snowdrop one of our Dexter cows started to calf unexpectedly. She had been sold to us as part of a herd and had been PD’d as barren, so it really was very unexpected. The calf was twisted so we had to assist with the delivery, we eventually got him out but he was very weak. Extra feeds of colostrum were given by hand as he needed some assistance to suckle and a close watch was kept though out the night.
