Progress report, Clementine's new daughter

Young heifer Clementine gave birth to a daughter a few days before Christmas 2011 and mother and baby are doing well. In this video by farmer Jonathan, we see the new arrival enjoying her young stock pen, where she is kept for a while after birth. The new calf is one of very view who will be born on the farm during the cold winter months. Jonathan explains he tries to avoid having too many calves born in the coldest months.
