Jasmine is a 2nd freshening 3 year old Jersey cow. She had a bull last year. She is bred to Waldo, one of our Jersey bulls.
Contractions had been going on for about a 1/2 hour at this point, but this is when it got serious.
Just arrived. Bobby(due anytime) is helping clean.
What a trip! Calf takes first big breath.

Its a GIRL!
She gathers her long legs and up she sits.
Looking for the FOOD!! Insinct is an amazing thing.
I had to go in at this point, so I missed pictures of her first meal. But here she is a bit later, well fed and dry.
A perfect textbook labour with the result being a beautiful heifer.
