Brown Swiss

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!
