Patrick captured the action on his mobile phone the other day when Steve had to assist one of our heifers with the delivery of her first calf. The labor was difficult, because the calf was in breech presentation (hind legs first instead of head and front legs first). This is the kind of event that I worry about. When Steve goes up the street for groceries—let alone out of town for a holiday—I pray for this not to happen. Our cows have a pretty good record. So far there have been dozens of births with only one that was complicated. Spoiler alert for the movie: mom and calf both end up fine.
