All about Spring
A cow and calf

Calves are Born

When it is spring many animals and birds have their babies. They need to have their young when there is lots of food available and when the longer days mean that they have longer to find food for their young.

The warmer days and regular rainfall during spring means plants such as grass grow well. The lush, young grass in the fields mean the cow is well fed and can produce lots of milk for her calf.
