Bee-hind Update


Time for the bee-hind!

I’ve been checking on Glory Bee’s bee-hind daily, but there’s not been anything to report, so I have spared you.

Unfortunately, there’s still nothing to report! Everything looks the same!

    Is the cyber world ready for Cow Tail porn? Is Glory Bee of the age of consent for publication? I think she needs legal representation from a Agricultural Lawyer to protect her image and book rights. Warning I don’t come cheap…… may be bought off with pepperroni rolls and Ross’s Jerky sample..

    Our heifer just delivered the morning after Thanksgiving. Like you I watched for signs and saw nothing for so long. But I will say about 6 weeks before delivery her udder started to fill up. Her walking appeared looser, things in her body were preparing for delivery. Her udder swelled untill I thought it would pop! Then the due date(nov 15) arrived( we knew bec we inseminated and had pregnancy confirmed) and like clock work mucus appeared. I was so excited! Then days began to pass with no progress. I finally lost hope of ever figuring her out and exactly a week after her due date she delivered, during the night of all things! We awoke to a beautiful baby girl! I know because she has two holes under her tail. Lol. Even boys have teats I found out when our boy arrived in July. ;-). Who knew!! I remember calling my dad who has raised cattle all his life and telling him about my finding. He laughed so hard!!! Here I thought my calf was a mutant! He was very sick at birth with pneumonia so he let me really examine him and I was looking for anything abnormal.
    Well, I do hope this information is of some help. I know exactly how you feel with your bee- hind inspection. ;-). Oh, one other thing….if your girls are not coming into heat and jumping on each others rumps about ever 18-20 days then you(probably) have pregnant cows. When they deliver though is hard to tell. Best wishes on getting babies soon.

    I think that there has been more udder development too. You can see more definition in the halves, udder floor is looking level, the teats are looking similar in size and larger. First calf heifers are so hard to figure out if you don’t have a firm breeding date. They can start to develop, languish for a while and then all of a sudden BOOM, it looks like they could pop at any second. Or for some they look like nothing is happening any time soon and the next morning you have a calf on the ground. I would guess maybe a calf between Christmas and New Years. Probably whenever the next big snow storm/severe cold snap/ important event you wish to attend hits your area.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
