These were taken of two of my Dexter cows in labor. The dun, Poppy, had her 3rd calf, a 55 pound heifer on her due date. The black, Abby, had her 5th calf, a 65 pound bull calf, two weeks late. Each was a very easy labor compared to some first time heifers. These are the largest heifer and bull calf born here. The average weight is typically 45 pounds. Poppy just beginning labor. Notice udder is very bagged up and bones on hips (what are they called again) are prominent. Notice also that Poppy is very alert and her eyes are a little bugged out. Getting onry. Poppy is walking around pasture kicking the other cows because if she's miserable she wants everyone else to be too.
