He'll have a proper name, but his barn name is "Archie". Right now, Moose is out to pasture and we kept him in the calving pen while we move things around. We will probably graft another calf on Moose as well and it is easier to keep the calves in the pen for a couple of weeks before they go to pasture. Moose grazes with the dairy herd and comes in the feed her baby two times a day.
Why not milk Moose? We tried. We eventually came to an understanding. She raised a beautiful veal calf last year as well as Mini Moose (
Ultra Miss). We just handle her so much. She does like her curry in the winter when the hair is shedding, but just don't go near the udder. We can deal wtih that.
