This calf, and his Granddam were humanly put down on November 24th,2008. The calf did pretty well until it got cold. I just couldn't put him through a tough Iowa winter. His Granddam had her age, and bad stifle joints going against her. As hard as this winter has been so far, I made the best decision for them. It was a tough day for us though. She was a top notch producer. She had a good calf every year. One of her calves was the Golden Child heifer pictured on SP. Thank goodness we did keep her as a replacement. Both the cow, and calf are buried together in a pasture they loved to be in.
