Eat More Dirt

Fiona has begun stopping at the dirt pile on her way to our house to be milked. She plays like a frisky puppy in the dirt and rubs her head all in it. She even takes a few bites. This worries me and Emma. Now we are researching mineral deficiencies. Emma is going to take Fiona to graze along the fencerow and beside the hangar where there are a lot of wild plants. And I'm going to order Fiona some free choice minerals and kelp.

Fiona is bred to a Hereford bull and is due to calve in July.
