‘Tis the Season…Calving Season That Is.

It is hard to believe today is December 22nd.  It may be due in part to the fact that it is 70 degrees in Goldsboro today.  But I think it has more to do with how I am celebrating this holiday season.  I am not doing the usual Christmas shopping extravaganza, hanging lights, singing carols, or visiting family.  Rather, I am here on the farm helping look after the dozens of new born calves at the dairy.  Although I am spending this Christmas away from the shopping mall, the carols, and the Christmas trees, the spirit of Christmas feels more alive in me than it ever has.  I have had the pleasure of witnessing the miracle of life almost everyday.  And after all, a celebration of birth is to many the reason for the season.  There is nothing more beautiful, miraculous, or spiritual than seeing a mother cow give birth to a healthy calf.

Witness the beauty yourself…
