This breed of cattle simply melts my heart. The calves are heartbreakingly cute.
Rusty, this year’s swiss calf is so sweet. He will follow you without a halter. He runs to the pasture fence to get pet when he sees you coming.
And his ears. Those huge ears. They bounce when he runs. I love them so!

Squirt is now 17 months old. Not quite as sweet anymore, but still very mellow for a steer.

I would have 100 Swiss calves if we had the space!
