Planning for Meat
I am not sure if we will name this little guy- that would be up to Chuck.
Since it takes about 2 years until a cow would be big enough to butcher we needed to think about what is going to happen after we butcher the one we are raising at the moment (Martina). Since Athelas had a female calf, more valuable to us then meat, we decided we should buy a calf just in case LuLu has a little girl as well. And besides it is much nicer to bottle feed when summer is coming then when winter is coming. And right now he is the perfect size for Ilana!
