As a features producer, I get a lot of variety in my job. From fashion to fitness, celebs to...cows???
Yup, on Tuesday I headed out to Connecticut to do a story about a family dairy farm, part of the Cabot cheese co-op that has been milking cows and producing milk since 1720! In fact, the family still has the deed awarded to them from King George!
We watched them being milked:
And then visited them in their pens. Some were camera shy, while others were very friendly!
This cow below was called Dallas, after the Dallas cowboys!
So then, as we were shooting, we learned a cow was about to calf! We hurried over to watch it happen. So fascinating to watch a birth! I didn't want to post any TOO graphic pics, but I had to post this one of the calf coming out of the birth canal. Cause it was amazing too see!
After the calf was born, his mother started licking him clean.
After we watched the amazing birth, we visited all the other calfs in their nursery.
They were sooo cute!
My photographer Mike and I drove home, snacking on Cabot cheese. It was a lot of fun - but I couldn't wait to wash the manure smell off of me!
And that was my day on the farm!!
