We’re Expecting…

…two calves this winter!

That wasn’t a misleading title or anything, was it?  In my defense, it’s kinda hard to come up with any wording to announce that our cows are pregnant that doesn’t sound like it could be…well, the other thing that everyone is waiting to hear from us.

All in good time, people.

As I was saying, our two dairy heifers were bred through AI (that’s artificial insemination for those not hep to cow-breeding terminology), and have now been confirmed pregnant through a blood test.  In full disclosure though, they are still in the beginning stages of pregnancy, so the accuracy rate of the test is not 100%.  There is also the possibility of something happening…as there is at any point, but with them only being about 30 days and 55 days pregnant, that possibility is more real.

All of that to say that we’re super excited(!) and also keeping in mind that things could change.  You’ve got to be able to roll with the punches, ya know?

As things progress, we will keep the blog updated, so be sure to check back!
