on the dairyfarm
It is almost a month ago, since we came to Rob and Lornas farm. Rob and Kate from Kununurra told us to visit Rob's parents - we didn't regret to be there, it has been a very special time for us!
We could learn and see a lot on the farm. It was very special for us to see a freshly born calf. But we also saw a complicated delivery, which didn't end that nice.
The cow had big problems with the delivery, she was very weak. After the vets worked for a while, they realiced there were no more movements from the calf. That's why they had to get it out in pieces, otherwhise the cow would die. They discovered then it were twins, a female and a male. Rob explained to us, that only 10% of the femile calves survive in this constalation. That was very sad for me. We couldn't be dairyfarmer, that's for sure!
