GRWM: It's Herd
Health Day!

GRWM for herd health day!

Another day, another smoothie. It’s herd health day. I’ve been addicted to smoothies lately and here’s how I make it:
  • 1 cup of Kefir
  • 1/2 cup of Greek Yogurt
  • Some fruit – usually berries I have on hand
  • 1 tablespoon Chia Seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Flax Seeds 
  • A little milk

And blend it up – it’s delicious!

Now that we are fueled up we are ready to preg check some cows with the vet. Our vet comes by weekly to check a selection of cows. Most of the cows he is checking recently gave birth or might be pregnant.
Before the vet arrives Tom and I take the list of cows we will be checking and try to lock them up in the headlocks so when the vet gets here it’s easy peasy lemon squeezy. 
When the vet get here’s I run the clipboard and he runs a rectal ultrasound machine that allows him to see inside the cow. He can tell if they’re pregnant and he can even sex the calf male or female. It’s pretty cool.
Team work makes the dream work!
