The Internship - Part II

This post is a continuation of my previous post on my Internship and Seven Pines Farm and Fence.

New born calf named Bella by my daughter because it apparently means beautiful.
(I wanted to name her J-wow after the Jersey Shores TV Star)

The snow finally melted and the little pigs are having fun playing in the grass!

Another new born heifer calf

The feeder pigs where moved from their winter home into the calf shed where
they are pigeratring the bedding pack to help compost it.  We had spread some grain
into the bedding pack during the winter to encourage the pigs to root and turn over the bedding pack.

Calves each have their own pen and are being bottle fed mothers milk.
