Baby Belle has joined the farmily

Baby Belle was born to our cow Jingle on Saturday, December 26th. She is the first heifer born at Venison Valley! Her sire is Uvray, a registered Normande. 

This was the first time that I've had to intervene in a calving. Jingle just didn't have enough to push the head and shoulders through. Uvray is not a 'calving ease' bull, apparently! With a helper pulling each leg, we were able to help Belle through during a few consecutive contractions. The good news is that both calf and momma are healthy.
