The Warm Milk is Fresh

One of two twin calves stops to pose for the camera while the other continues with lunch at the Keith and Dallas Johnston ranch 10 kilometres southeast of Hayter and one mile west of the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. This pair, a day and a half old when the picture was taken in early March were among 18 sets of twins and approximately 240 newborns already appearing at the ranch with up to 100 more births expected. Keith Johnston says the biggest concern for ranchers are usually disease and cold weather though those worries have been avoided so far. Because births happen around the clock, Johnston begins his chores at 2 a.m. and will work for 16 to 18 hours including tagging and checking on cows and generally watching for problems. ©Provost News Photo.
