Ginnie BakerPeople who live in a large city assume that all is peaceful and quiet out in the country.

They should come out here and spend a few days and nights; they’d soon find out it’s pretty noisy!

At calving time, there is a lot of “mooing” as the calves begin arriving. My neighbors raise beef cattle and have a good sized herd with a lot of calves expected each spring.

The calving began a couple of weeks ago so there is a lot of noise associated with their births! The calves arrive anytime, day or night, so the mooing is a constant sound until they all arrive.
