Newborn calf gets shelter from the storm

UPI News Service, 02/25/2013 

The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture said a calf born during a snowstorm was given shelter for the night then reunited with his mother.

Jesse Bocksnick, Sebastian County extension agent for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, said Greenwood farmers Doug and Ann Russell discovered the calf was born during near their barn during Thursday's winter storm, which involved snow, hail and sleet, and gave the baby temporary shelter in the mudroom of their home.

"Baby was in house for about four hours. We dried him with a heating pad for a large dog, my hair dryer and towels and gave him some milk," Ann said. The calf "was a good housemate. He stayed laid down 90 percent of the time. Once he got warm he decided to get up. He went outside shortly after that."

Bocksnick said the couple reported the calf was reunited with his mother Friday morning and the pair appeared to be doing well.
