Hancock Shaker Village 2009



We made our annual trip to the Hancock Shaker Village in Pittsfield, MA the second to last weekend in September to exhibit Randall calves at the Country Fair weekend. We took heifers "Alice" and "Billie", both around 10 months old. The weather was nice on Saturday, rainy on Sunday, but it was a good trip.

Randall Steers For Sale

We've got a pair of month old steers we'd like to sell to be trained as oxen. This pair is pretty well matched and within a couple of days in age. They are being bottle fed and are being lead trained. We're asking $700. for the pair.

This pair has been sold, thanks for looking!

First And Last Calf Of 2008

At left is a picture of our faithful milk cow "Dora" and her new heifer calf "Laura", the farm's last calf of 2008.

Below that is a photo of "Cora", the first heifer of 2008. Cora's mom is also Dora, so Dora has the rare distinction of having both the first and last heifer calves of 2008!
