The Birth of a Baby Cow (Reality Warning)

The following footage is of real life.
If real life disturbs you, please stop watching now.

At a traditional sugar shack we met a lovely couple who own an organic dairy farm just outside of Quebec City. We took the invitation to visit their farm two weeks later. It was a beautiful blue-skied sunny day; the warm welcome to the family owned farm, horse back riding and seeing a baby hedgehog made it even better. The opportunity to visit an organic dairy farm in action is such a special experience; however the most amazing thing that happened that day could not have been planned and I will remember it forever. A dairy cow was ready to give birth to a calf, and as luck would have it, she gave birth soon after we arrived. We watched this miracle of life unfold with awe. The cows have a name which is given alphanumerically and I was given the honour to name the 19th cow.

So, welcome to the world, Sydney - born on the 1st of May 2011.

we separate them so that they are easier to handle. and the babies can get
the care that they need. babies dont need to be in the barn with the big
cows. not all farmers are cruel to their animals. our dairy cows love us.

Author Carl Tuttle (1 year)
Gross but sooooo cute

Author Madhur Patel (2 years)
A cow's love for the calf is the purest.. Immediately after the birth, the
cow licks all the dirt from the calf's body and comforts it. No other
mother would ever do that. And the sick humans separate the calf from the
mother on the very first or second day so that the humans can drink the
cow's milk which is meant for the calf and enjoy veal. Go Vegan!

Author ThatguyNice (2 years)
Yep. That's how it would happen in nature. The cow would call a human to
help pull and help the calf stand up. So very natural.

Dairy farms are terrible to their cows. the calfs are separated from their
mothers within a day or two of birth; the males are sent for slaughter and
females sent off to live the sequestered, lonely life of a dairy cow.

Author Richard Mason (3 years)
Love the warning in the beginning. Being a farmer myself, it's so foreign
to me that people are disturbed by real life! I've witnessed births like
this since I was a little kid and assisted in several calvings and
kiddings. When I was in middle school, we had to take a mandatory sex
education class, and it amazed me that my classmates knew nothing about
where babies come from and how they got there.

While size in a calf is desirable to a degree, this cow likely had a narrow
pelvis. Because, you know, they have unique bodies just like we do.

@cowboyrich6 thanks mate, I totally agree, it's truly sad how a big part of
society these days has no real connection to where their food comes from.

Author mwedzi (1 year)
So is this video then not indicative of the most common type of cow birth?
It just seems unusual, comparing them to the vast majority of animals that
can birth on their own. Is this a rare circumstance? Or is this a result of
breeding, where cattle were bred for other characteristics, with the
knowledge that humans can assist in birthing if need be. I imagine for wild
animals, if they could not birth on their own the vast majority of the
time, that feature would be weeded out evolutionarily.

Author ll4m4tr0n (1 year)
I'm not all anti-meat and such, but are these cattle going to live out
their lives in a lush grassland just giving milk and given respectful
burial? If not, let's not gussy it up with music and say this is a
beautiful event and they're not just a future resource to be consumed.
