00:00:09,250 --> 00:00:22,070

I don't think there's anything cuter




3

00:00:22,269 --> 00:00:23,629

than a bunch of Jersey cabs I've never




4

00:00:23,829 --> 00:00:25,309

seen them like this until the other day




5

00:00:25,509 --> 00:00:27,629

when we came out and look at this cow

10

00:01:29,969 --> 00:01:32,000

we gotta kick these goats out of the




11

00:01:32,200 --> 00:01:34,789

barn because we're gonna put cows in




12

00:01:34,989 --> 00:01:37,319

here




13

00:01:40,079 --> 00:02:05,829

come on lady yes the goats from the




14

00:02:06,030 --> 00:02:10,819

other side of this gate in there




15

00:02:17,900 --> 00:02:25,120

everyone's okay we got our New Jersey




16

00:02:25,319 --> 00:02:29,950

cow pick her up today as you saw in the




17

00:02:30,150 --> 00:02:33,610

video her name she comes with his




18

00:02:33,810 --> 00:02:38,800

Wallace and this is a little heifer calf




19

00:02:39,000 --> 00:02:41,890

over on this side and then we decided to




20

00:02:42,090 --> 00:02:46,210

go ahead and get this steer and bring




21

00:02:46,409 --> 00:02:46,840

him along




22

00:02:47,039 --> 00:02:50,469

this is not her calf but our plan is to




23

00:02:50,669 --> 00:02:53,439

get him to nurse on her




24

00:02:53,639 --> 00:02:56,830

so both calves will be on her it's a




25

00:02:57,030 --> 00:02:58,689

little bit of a challenge but we've been




26

00:02:58,889 --> 00:02:59,980

going back and forth and trying to




27

00:03:00,180 --> 00:03:02,020

decide we pretty much decided against it




28

00:03:02,219 --> 00:03:03,400

and then we said you know what let's do




29

00:03:03,599 --> 00:03:09,889

it and so we brought him along as well




30

00:03:12,430 --> 00:03:14,610

cows always get dirty in trailers




31

00:03:14,810 --> 00:03:16,980

because they poop all over and rub up




32

00:03:17,180 --> 00:03:25,260

against the sides we're just letting




33

00:03:25,460 --> 00:03:27,719

them kind of chill out down here get




34

00:03:27,919 --> 00:03:28,920

used to being in here we'll leave them




35

00:03:29,120 --> 00:03:34,410

in the barn at least until tomorrow to




36

00:03:34,610 --> 00:03:35,969

kind of get used to being here and calm




37

00:03:36,169 --> 00:03:37,680

down before we let him out in the fence




38

00:03:37,879 --> 00:03:42,140

we also want to keep this calf the steer




39

00:03:42,340 --> 00:03:45,840

real close to her we got to watch this




40

00:03:46,039 --> 00:03:49,680

process very closely and may need to get




41

00:03:49,879 --> 00:03:52,080

real hands-on in it and getting him to




42

00:03:52,280 --> 00:03:54,270

nurse on her the question is not will he




43

00:03:54,469 --> 00:03:56,280

nurse on her of course he will the




44

00:03:56,479 --> 00:04:01,590

question is will she let him nurse we




45

00:04:01,789 --> 00:04:03,689

already actually saw him in the trailer




46

00:04:03,889 --> 00:04:05,790

nurse a little bit which is that's




47

00:04:05,990 --> 00:04:08,630

encouraging and she didn't pick him off




48

00:04:08,830 --> 00:04:11,520

sometimes it's hard to get cast in her




49

00:04:11,719 --> 00:04:13,439

son different moments but we already




50

00:04:13,639 --> 00:04:16,139

knew that this calf kind of tried to




51

00:04:16,339 --> 00:04:18,509

nurse on every moment around so we knew




52

00:04:18,709 --> 00:04:22,120

that that was gonna be the problem




53

00:04:25,620 --> 00:04:28,110

how does that feel having a cow again




54

00:04:28,310 --> 00:04:35,500

right good I do think that learning the




55

00:04:35,699 --> 00:04:38,350

new routine with new animals you know it




56

00:04:38,550 --> 00:04:40,990

stresses the animals to be moved but it




57

00:04:41,189 --> 00:04:43,300

also stresses the new animals you know




58

00:04:43,500 --> 00:04:45,370

that have to get used to new creatures




59

00:04:45,569 --> 00:04:47,230

and then it stresses us not nearly as




60

00:04:47,430 --> 00:04:50,079

much but you know just takes time to




61

00:04:50,279 --> 00:04:53,199

learn the new routine but I'm really




62

00:04:53,399 --> 00:04:56,439

excited I just feel so blessed that we




63

00:04:56,639 --> 00:05:09,610

found a grass-fed Jersey so close it was




64

00:05:09,810 --> 00:05:11,889

basically a year ago that her last milk




65

00:05:12,089 --> 00:05:15,278

cow died and we've been looking forward




66

00:05:15,478 --> 00:05:17,860

to this day people asked us over and




67

00:05:18,060 --> 00:05:18,968

over when you're gonna get a milk cow




68

00:05:19,168 --> 00:05:21,460

and we always we never were impatient




69

00:05:21,660 --> 00:05:23,079

for the day to come but I do feel like




70

00:05:23,279 --> 00:05:25,360

this is the right cow at the right time




71

00:05:25,560 --> 00:05:30,730

for us I feel like in some ways we know




72

00:05:30,930 --> 00:05:32,410

a lot more than you then in some ways we




73

00:05:32,610 --> 00:05:34,000

still have so much to learn about cows




74

00:05:34,199 --> 00:05:36,550

and it's intimidating honestly just not




75

00:05:36,750 --> 00:05:39,009

not keeping a cow but as health problems




76

00:05:39,209 --> 00:05:42,218

arise this intimidating but I'm pretty




77

00:05:42,418 --> 00:05:45,870

confident that we're going into it as




78

00:05:46,069 --> 00:05:49,028

just with them in many ways the kind of




79

00:05:49,228 --> 00:05:51,639

a better footing in I wouldn't say a




80

00:05:51,839 --> 00:05:53,079

better footing in animal care but kind




81

00:05:53,279 --> 00:05:54,370

of in where we're at in our lives right




82

00:05:54,569 --> 00:05:58,240

now to just do a really fine job with




83

00:05:58,439 --> 00:06:04,629

this cow it is Alice we wanted to keep




84

00:06:04,829 --> 00:06:07,930

it similar but I really I don't like




85

00:06:08,129 --> 00:06:09,819

changing animals names but in this




86

00:06:10,019 --> 00:06:18,850

instance I really wanted to so folks




87

00:06:19,050 --> 00:06:19,900

thanks for joining us we'll let you know




88

00:06:20,100 --> 00:06:24,189

89

00:06:24,389 --> 00:06:27,009

90

00:06:27,209 --> 00:06:28,410
