Moosworthy Information Straight from the Dairy!

Billy, Wubbzy’s little Protégé

Wubbzy

**Wubbzy, full grown and one mean old bull**

So you might be wondering, whatever happened to Wow Wow Wubbzy, Wubbzy, Wubbzy Wow Wow, the smallest calf with the longest name. Wubbzy was actually quite the popular calf back in his prime, and even rose to celebrity status when the creator or the real Wow Wow Wubbzy show took notice last year.

Wow Wow Wubbzy was our farm pet, and he even went to the county fair. Even though he didn’t win at the fair, he was still immensely popular with everyone who visited him there.

These days Wubbzy has outgrown his cuteness, and is really quite mean. He is fully grown now, and very ferocious. I try to avoid his pen these days.

**Did I mention mean.. Watch out!**

The good news is that there is another little Jersey bull that has taken attempted to take Wubbzy’s place. Billy is a little bull that my youngest sister has made her pet.

**Billy, he kind of looks like Wubbzy**

Billy was signed up to go to the fair this year, but he couldn’t go this year. Billy just had too much ringworm. It was really quite unfortunate. On the upside, Billy has gotten rid of his ringworm, and has healthy skin. He didn’t even need to use Proactive Solution 😉

**Having fun with Billy**

Unfortunately Billy will also grow-up, and that’s a fact will probably be the most difficult thing for my sister. In the meantime, she’s having a lot of fun with him while he grows to be as big and strong as Wow Wow Wubbzy.

**Cottonball our new bunny rabbit**

Easter has arrived at last, another reminder that spring has arrived! Cottonball was a friendly addition and helped us celebrate the holiday.

This past week, my family has been busy showing some of our animals at the California State Dairy Show. The show was very intense, but our animals did pretty well in the contest. One of our Red and White Holsteins won her class!

**Cali chillaxing at the show**

All the cows arrive to the fairgrounds early in the week so they can recover from their journey to the show and get familiar with their new surroundings. By allowing arriving early and resting from the journey, the cows look their best by show time! The California State dairy show is the largest dairy show in California where the best of the best come and compete.

Cali, our red and white heifer, was just one of the heifers we showed at the show. She is a pretty calm heifer and was quite happy to be attending the show. She is just a natural beauty queen! 

**Cali entertaining herself**

Cali was pretty calm the entire show, and loved all the attention. Life at the show was easy for her. Clean bedding, a cool barn, and food delivered straight to her. Definitely a life of luxury.

**My brother showing Cali**

My brother got to show a few of the heifers in the show ring. The above picture shows Cali in the ring competing against other Holstein cows from all around California. Cali is pretty serious in the show ring.

**My sister showing Cali**

My sister also got to show Cali off in the show ring. Look how alert Cali is in the ring. She puts on a pretty exciting show.

**Picture time after winning her class**

Cali ended up winning her class at the show. The winners got to take their pictures which is a special honor! In the picture above the photographers are setting Cali up so she can look her best in the picture.

**The prize**

After all the hard work of showing, this is a pretty satisfying reward! Cali is officially one of the top Red and White Holsteins in California

About Crazy Moos

Welcome to the Crazy Moos blog! Crazy Moos is a play on words, basically trying to create a fun environment (crazy) for dairy news (moos). The overall goal of this blog is to communicate “moosworthy information” (newsworthy information) about the dairy industry and important happening on the dairy farm. Hopefully this blog will help people learn about various aspects of the dairy industry and what happens on the dairy farm. Visit regularly for new blog postings!

About Me

I am a 3rd generation dairyman in California, and our dairy farm really is a reflection of the American dream. My grandfather came to America from Europe after World War II in search of greater opportunities, and a safer place to raise a family. He came to America with hardly anything except his exceptional appreciation for hard work. My grandpa after a few years was able to start his own dairy farm and start producing high quality, nutritious milk. In the 70’s, he moved the operation to a more remote area (our current location), and started growing the herd.

Today, I am actively taking part in the farms daily responsibilities. I’m well qualified to be in the dairy industry, and consider myself pretty knowledgeable about the dairy industry having just graduating college with a degrees in dairy science, and dairy processing.

Many people today believe that the dairy industry has been taken over by large corporate farms, but a recent study done shows that most dairies are family owned. In fact, 99% of dairy farms in California are family owned and operated. My whole family is involved on the dairy. My sisters are caretakers of the baby calves, and we guys take care of the cows. There are eight kids in our family, so the dairy is definitely a family affair!

Milk is one of the world’s most nutritious natural products. So many people today are forgetting that milk is filled with many different nutrients, all combined to work in synergy together to maximize the body’s absorption of these nutrients. It’s the perfect blend of nutrients, in nature’s most natural product.

Milk, it’s a natural product, that’s naturally good for you!
