The weanling heifers, called "the heffies" so as to distinguish them from the yearling heifers, are kept near the barn for several weeks. The corral fences are more secure than wire ones, thus preventing an unnecessary cow-calf re-weaning. 

Besides, feeding and visiting the heffies regularly is great public relations. Friendly heffies generally grow up to be sweet-tempered cows. 

Remember when Angel gave us cute little Gabriela this spring?

Gabby is now one of the biggest heffies, but she's still a cutie. 


"But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous...full of mercy and good deeds." ~James 3:17 TLB
