Beau Calf !! - அழகி நீ, பேரழகி அழகான கண்ணழகி !!

அழகி நீ, பேரழகி அழகான கண்ணழகி  !!


என நடுரோட்டில்  நின்று உரக்க  பாட உங்களுக்கு தோன்றியது உண்டா ! - காதல் வயப்பட்டோர் பற்றிய பதிவல்ல இது - ஒரு விதத்தில் இதுவும் காதலே !!, சாதாரண மனித காதல் அல்ல !! 

Following English county cricket, have read about Derbyshire, Essex, Glamorgan, Somerset, Kent, Lancashire,  Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Sussex, Warwickshire,  Worcestershire, Yorkshire.  A not so well known (to me) shire is – Shropshire,  a landlocked historic county in the West Midlands region of England bordering Wales.   

Cows are herbivorous animals, they  feed on plant-based food sources. They typically graze on grasses and other vegetation types like clover, alfalfa, and forbs. In addition to these primary plants, cows will also eat hay, silage (fermented feed stored in a silo or bunker), grains such as corn or wheat bran, and even tree leaves.   

Farmers go to great lengths to make sure that their cows and calves are healthy and well cared for. Calves are the future of the herd, so dairy farmers are committed to making sure that every calf is healthy and safe from harm. This means providing nutritious feed, safe housing and individual care to their animals throughout their lives. 

Great calf care begins even before the calf is born! Cows typically give birth to a calf every 12-14 months. About two months before a cow is due to give birth, she stops being milked and is transitioned to a special diet to prepare her for calving.  Cows typically only drink water after they are weaned. They can also get some of their liquids from grass and hay. For example, cows that graze on pasture will naturally be able to obtain moisture from the plants they eat.   Fresh water is essential for a cow’s proper digestion and high-quality milk production. 

அழகி நீ, பேரழகி அழகான கண்ணழகி  !! 

வம்சா வழி அத்தனையும் வழியை மறந்தது இல்ல

வளர்ப்புகளும் பொறுப்புகளும் சொல்ல - ஒரு வார்த்தை இல்ல 

கங்கை அமரன் மிக திறமையாக ஒரு நீல ட்ராயர் அணிந்த ராமராஜன் மாடுகளை கவனித்துக்கொண்டு பாடும் பாட்டை அழகாக வடிவமைத்து இருந்தார்.  இந்த கன்று குட்டியை பார்த்தவுடன் - தெருவிலே உரக்க பாடத் தோன்றியது.

Baby cows, also known as calves, will typically drink their mother’s milk for the first several months of life. The timing of natural weaning is typically ten months. Some mothers nurse their calves for log providing them with essential nutrients and antibodies to help protect them from illness and infection. Newborn calves require a critical amount of colostrum from their mother in the first few hours after birth. Colostrum maximizes absorption and immunity. It is ideal for the calf to quickly stand and feed from the mother. This first meal is one of the most important for the calf. During this first meal, s sequence of changes to the calf’s digestive system will occur. The intestine walls of the newborn allow for nutrients to reach the bloodstream, including colostral antibodies, as well as pathogens. 

Cows have a unique digestive system that is specifically adapted to eat and process grass. Their four-chambered stomach helps them break down the tough cellulose found in plant material more efficiently than other animals. 

Miles away, a north Shropshire calf dealer has been prosecuted by Shropshire Council for breaches of animal welfare and identification charges. The calf dealer was  fined over £11,000 and banned from owning cattle for five years after he admitted to charges relating to the failure to prevent unnecessary suffering to animals.  The man admitted to two charges of being the responsible person for animals when he failed to take steps to prevent an employee from causing unnecessary suffering to calves and one count of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal that he kicked himself. 

Shropshire Council had alleged that one of Whittall’s employees repeatedly kicked, pushed and threw calves down a ramp when they were being unloaded.  Whittall also admitted to three charges of removing or replacing cattle ear tags without the permission of the competent authority, in breach of the Cattle Identification Regulations.  He was sentenced to an 18-month community order with requirements to attend 10 rehabilitation days and undertake 200 hours of unpaid work. He was ordered to pay costs totalling £11,855.34 within 12 months and was charged a victim surcharge of £95. He was also disqualified from owing, keeping or being party to and arrangement etc. of bovines for five years at Telford Magistrates’ Court
