Walking through the soft soil, scanning from fence to fence, you see the newborn calves running, playing and full of life. You look down to see one calf nibbling at your feet. That is the moment you know, this is the one you are going to raise for the rest of their life.

An almost instantaneous bond is created with these loving yet fragile calves because the exhibitors raise them from newborn babies until adulthood.
