Brand New Baby – Y’all Name The Calf!

by Tammy Taylor~

Well, well, well, April-the-Giraffe’s baby was finally born. Have y’all watched the live video for the past month? I popped in from time to time but didn’t have enough time to watch too much. But now they’re having folks submit suggestions for the baby’s name.  Guess what – this pretty girl was born on that same day too!!

We're excited about a brand new baby calf. Howzabout a little fun? I'll let one of you name her! Just go to our Facebook page & name the calf. #TaylorMadeHomestead

Howzabout a little fun? I’ll let one of you name the new calf! This pretty girl was born while we were away, so with her legs already firmly beneath her we were not able to officially weigh her. But OMGosh she’s so beautiful!!

Y’all know we run a registered Hereford cattle operation, so each of our babies receives an official registered name. The name consists of our ranch ID number, then a calf name, then our herd ID #. Her dam is Ms Navigator and her sire is our own hunky herd bull TMR Pride. Sometimes we combine the dam & sire name but not always.

What say you – what’s a good name for her? Go to our Facebook Page and add your name choice in the comments. And you can cast your vote by clicking ‘LIKE’ next to the name suggestions that you like the most. The name with the most likes wins!

    She is a beauty, we had black angus. A neighbor’s white faced bull did some fertilizing and they made some pretty calves too. I’m assuming that you have already used Navigators Pride. I know after while you do run out of names. I would call her sugar. Don’t know why is just seem to fit her for me. Hope someone comes up with a good name for her.

      Black baldies do very well here to Tonia. As a matter of fact we purchased 2 registered Angus heifers so we can either A.I. them and have them calve registrable Angus calves or let our bull breed them & let them calve F1 Baldies. Both do well in this area! ~TMH~

        Their ear tags contain our ranch ID & their herd ID number and date of birth. The first numbers of their herd ID belong to their dam showing whom the calf belongs to. The second number is their calf order to their dam. So this heifer #167-5 is the fifth calf that her dam #167 has had, so it also helps us gauge the age of the dam at a glance. The ear tags are placed on one side for heifers, the other side for bulls so we can tell at a glance even in tall grass which gender we’re looking at when we’re checking on calves. Our tagging system has worked out well for us! ~TMH~
