Bovine babies grow up fast

They’re not quite babies anymore.

If you were with us back in April you likely caught a glimpse of this cute calf post by Miranda. #Calfwatch14 was in full swing and the CAB staffers who dedicate before and after work hours to caring for their own herds kept quite the busy schedule.

With summer nearly behind us and fall on the horizon, I thought it only right to check in with those bovine babies and see if they’d show off their good side for the camera once again. They didn’t disappoint. What divas!

Like any growing youngin’ Paul’s Nebraska (half) pair preferred to be photographed without mom this time.

Kara’s calves spent their summer grazing the tall Kansas grass,


while Barb’s Ohio babies were just thankful to be out of the snow.

and Christy’s is too.


(Hey, wait a minute…not again, you sneaky ovine!)

Steve’s beauties are still walkin’ on sunshine in Kansas,

As for my gals in Florida, they’re getting by just fine, one summer shower at a time.

and seasons come and go,


it’s good to know that some things never change…


like this one’s love for the camera. (Get me with your best shot!)


Thanks for allowing me to tell your story,

Born and raised in the Sunshine State, I grew up surrounded by more livestock than people on my family’s working cattle ranch. A willingness to address a crowd and an eagerness to ask questions led to my passion for spreading the word of agriculture. A lover of words, cattle and those who produce them, I couldn't ask for a better job. A Gator grad, blessed by years of learning and Tebow football, I’m a firm believer that people should be honest, lyrics should be moving and tea should be sweet. I love music, my family, my God, and of course writing for CAB.
