It sounds like a bunch of vans are roaring through the barn. But the calves like the feed we give them, and they calm down before long. 37 Dr. Marshall, our veterinarian, brings medical supplies with him in his truck. That way, the cattle don’t have to leave the farm until they’re sold. Once the cattle are weaned, we can start getting ready to sell them. The females who haven’t had calves yet are called heifers. Sometimes we keep a heifer to replace a cow that’s gotten old or sick. But we sell most of them.

I don’t mind most of the hard work, like fixing fences and baling hay. Even cleaning out the smelly barn isn’t so bad. I like spend­ ing time with the animals and taking care of them. I like looking out my win­ dow and seeing the pasture and the cows. I like driving the tractor. I’m not sure about what I’ll do in the future, but it’s hard to think of anything better than staying right here on our farm. 43 Facts Cattle Fun about In the Hindu religion, the cow is a sacred animal.
