Was the Night Before Christmas- and that Darn Heifer is Ready for Birth

Wed, 23 Dec 2020 06:33:21 CST

Was the Night Before Christmas- and that Darn Heifer is Ready for Birth Courtesy of Charlie Amos, who co-hosts the Farm to Market Podcast with Dr. Derrell Peel- we have a Christmas Poem that follows the path of a classic- but is distinctively different. Without further comments, here's a Cow-Calf Version of the Night Before Christmas.

Was the night before Christmas, all through the house, no one was stirring, cause the rancher was out.

See, a heifer was in trouble, with a calf on the way, with snow so deep it covered the hay.

The mercury fell, to way down below, the heifer she turned, circles in the snow.

When all of a sudden some headlights appeared, the rancher was there and the calf was near.

The rancher climbed out. His Stormy Kromer socked down. He pulled on his gloves, dreaming of a job in town.

The calf was head first, the natural way, just a leg turned back, blocking the way.

A little assist was all the heifer would need. Soon both feet emerged, plum to the knees.

The rancher he pulled. The heifer she strained. A nose appeared, and then the calf came.

The heifer swapped ends, measuring the task. Motherly skills set in against the cold blast.

From the bed of the truck came a small square. The Rancher busted hay, the heifer just stared.

Then all at once, as quick as an an asp. The heifer she knocked, the rancher on his ass.

You’re welcome he said, leaving the fight. Merry Christmas to you, now have a good night.
