We've tried for a long time to get a video of a cow having a calf but somehow they're really good about having them when we're not around. At least until today. This is Natalie, a red and white holstein. Arthur does AI or artificial insemination on a lot of the cows and one of the traits he breeds the cows for is calving ease. As you can see, it was a breeze for this mama! Doing AI also eliminates the need for having big bulls around which is a real safety factor and costs less. We do keep a dairy and beef bull around for the ones he doesn't catch but their young bulls.
