Today we welcomed baby calf #2630. We are calling her Mytty because her sire's name is Mytty in Focus. Or in other words . . . she'll always know the answer to the question "who's your daddy?"
Every new calf born on our ranch get an eartag number that matches it's mother's number. This helps us keep track of who's who at all times. The eartags are also color coded. In Mytty's case, the yellow tag (see in the photo below) tells us that her mother is a first calf heifer, or that this is her mother's first baby. We'll follow Mytty around the ranch in future blog posts.
