It time to "weaner" the babe
Momma cows need a winter rest from the babes. Time to do the two step, not the Texas two step but the weaner two step. First the eight month calves will be be accessorized with weaner plates for eight to ten days until the mom's milk drys up, then the nose ornament will be removed and the teenager calves go to the own pasture to become independent of momma cow. This is the least stressful method of independence for all concerned, including me. No more screaming from mommy with this method.
