Mmmm, Tasty. ;)

I'm assuming he's beef for the family you're watching him for?

Even though he is supposed to be food he is very very cute. I like the videos they give us a glimpse into the farm life :-)

Love the name. Earlier this summer, I met Burger and Steak at a friend's farm. I'm sure they'd relate to Tasty. Have fun cow sitting!

He almost matches Gibson. I love cows. Have fun. I raised 2 calves from just hours old. Still have the heifer. She's 2 and is now 3 months pregnant! The steer is in the freezer. Very tasty.

Jenna, dear, bear with me here as I grew up with cattle, both beef and diary.

This is a calf.

Cows are female adults, having already given birth. Until giving birth, they are heifers.

Since this is a male, he is considered a bull calf, until he is castrated, then he becomes a steer. If raised to an adult working age, they can become oxen.

There's your condensed cattle gender lesson! Have fun with the calf. They are sure cute!

Thanks for the Calf lesson, Clare! That was neat. I hope we can get two calves this next Spring when the pasture is finished. I'm reconciled to the fact they'll grow up and become "Roast" and "Steak"...but I'll enjoy playing with them while they're little. Well, actually, they're never "little" are they?!

Jenna, everyone, please be sure to stop by my new website and sign up for the fun giveaway I'm doing. There's a great 600+ page cookbook from the readers of Harrowsmith Magazine. It's: www.mysouthernheart.com

Tasty...hmmm...I thought that name was reserved for hogs...

I guess if you're going to name an animal that will become food, you might as well call it something that reminds you of that. Especially if it's cute. Dinner is not cute, so cute can't be dinner.

Looks tasty, though. That works.

Oh watch he don't eat too many apples and get bloated! That's not a good thing ...

Thanks for the lesson, Clare! It is good to know these things when you live in the country so you don't sound like a boob. It took me a while to get the goat and sheep terminology down. I still have to be careful when I am buying hay and straw, too.

Cute video.

Totally gorgeous, do you think you CAF will be up for a house cow some day? (Cause you haven’t got enough work to do!)

agree w/ clare...
If he is a cow then he is a she. If she is a he I advise you don't milk him.
