Calfs Details: Ginger,  Heifer,  Jersey,  DOB: 14/07/18,

OUR STORY: Hi,
I am Chloe Sargent, I am 9 years old and I live in Ngatea. This is my 3rd year doing calf club.

My calf’s name is Ginger and she’s great. She is very friendly and I love spending time with her. Ginger wears a cover to keep her coat clean and to make her feel secure. At calf club we do jobs like:

Brush our calves daily
Lead them around the obstacle course and walk them.
Wash and clean them

What I like most about my calf is giving her cuddles.

Calfs Details: Yogi, Bull, Speckle Park x Shorthorn, 3-Aug-18,

OUR STORY:  Yogis sire is a bull called Kidmans Cove. He is currently receiving 2L of milk powder each day. Each year I compete in a national competition called Future Beef Hoof & Hook so I will tear Yogi till R2 amd take him through the competition. I regularly participate in shows and was devistated to hear to cancellation of most shows this season. I usually get a calf at the beginning of June so I am rather sad because my calves are always much bigger and on a lot more milk but due to M Bovis I have been unable to.

Calfs Details: Trixie/Big red, Heifer, Beef dairycross, DOB 11/08/18,

OUR STORY:  I have had kid goats for calf clubs right through my primary/intermediate years. I have missed having an Ag day pet. Mum said i could help her feed 25 beef calves. Mum has allowed me to purchase one of the calves and if i rear it and help mum feed all the others im allowed to sell it and have the money to put into my account. First thing i learnt is that a good beef calf needs five points (4 white socks, white face, white tail). I chose the nicest looking calf so it will sell well when reared.

Calfs Details: Lucy, Heifer, Friesian, 9-Jul-18,

OUR STORY:  Hi, my name is Summer and I’m 13 years old. I have been doing Calf Club for 6 years. As I live on a farm but do not own any cattle I borrow a calf from the Pirie Farms. I personally like Friesian’s better than Jersey’s so I usually pick a nice Friesian every year. I really like the mostly black Friesian’s as they stand out more but since it’s my last year I decided to go with a mostly white Friesian. I brush and lead her everyday. When she is being a good girl, I give her a marshmallow.

Calfs Details: Shimmer, Heifer, Crossbreed, DOB 12th July,

OUR STORY:  My calf is Shimmer. She is a crossbreed. Her calf tag number is 41. She was born on July 12th. I chose my calf because she was quiet and I liked her coat. I was 100% sure about picking her when she scoffed 4 marshmallows and walked brilliantly in the pen. After school I brush Shimmer and take her for walks round our farm. The best part of leading is that I never have to go the same way. I like everything about rearing my calf especially watching her drink her milk.
