A cow spends

approximately 6

hours a day eating

grass and

about 8 hours

chewing their

cud!

Did You Know

The average

cow produces 10

-16 litres of milk

per day. In its

lifetime, a cow

produces about

2000,000 glasses

of milk!

The percentage

of milk fat can

change depending

on the breed

of cow, what the

cow eats and the

time of year.

This term we are

working on a project

which involves

working

and taking care of

three calves.

We will be setting

a demonstration

to the younger

Our Calves

kids on what we

have been

doing — such as

feeding, gate

making, grooming,

manure gathering

and herding

up the calves.

The names of our

calves are Milo

the female

(Shorthorn cross

Aberdeen Angus),

and Theo and

Odis who are

Friesians.

Today at the morning feed, Milo was doing really well. She drank 1.9 litres.

Theo drank the normal 2 litres and Odis was his usual hungry self and he

drank 2.1 litres. Milo drank out of the bottle because she doesn’t like drinking

out of the bucket, she is getting much better at drinking. Our calves like

their pen and the yard we made them. When our group is on ‘Feed’, I like to

feed Odis.

At AgEd we practiced leather making. We were also leading cattle. Tamika

and Alex led Charlie, the huge Aberdeen Angus steer. It almost rammed and

kicked them when it went crazy! Mr Pitts was leading the bull and it didn’t like

it! We took them back to the yards and put them through the Race and into

the Crush where we could weigh them.
