Cow Families

While venturing out to the mobile hen house this morning, I noticed a couple of different cow families hanging out together.

This is Red and two of her daughters. The white heifer is Red's 2013 calf and the larger heifer was her 2012 calf. Red is due to calve again in December  I'm hoping for another girl! Her older daughter will calve this spring.

These two heifers are sisters. I didn't get a picture, but I also have a mother/daughter pair that always enter the parlor together during milking. I love having a small enough milk herd to be able to see the different cow families. Of course I have my favorites!
