By the time this column is published, you might have heard me shout for joy if a 2021 calf is born. And if you hike the Audubon trails, keep an eye out for “the boys" munching away on those tender shoots. If I were an artist wanting to paint a picture of contentment, that's where I'd set up my easel.

It's sweet that teamsters want their activity to seem more masculine as if commanding a few thousand pounds of oxen to pull a heavy load is not macho enough. I work oxen, and whatever you call the yoked beasts, I think of controlling them as my super-power.

Belle, a 3-year-old Milking Shorthorn heifer, and Flora, Carole’s 14-week-old puppy, both made a debut at the Miles Smith Farm fundraising event for the farm’s non-profit Learning Barn.

Clipping cows means warm weather is near. Cow clipping is an annual ritual at Miles Smith Farm. Scottish Highlander cattle grow thick, rich coats of hair to protect them from frigid winter weather. Unlike a parka, the cattle can't remove their wooly coats when the weather warms up.

Do you want to try the "cow-cuddling cure"? Do you want to feel the soft breathing of a cow, look into those big brown eyes, smell a cow's sweet breath, and feel the warmth of that big body (101.5 degrees)?
