Fun Schleich Facts cattle and their calves have an exceptionally deep, life-long bond. They lick and nibble at each and every other. If they is separated, they can recognise each other down the road from their vocals and scent. Calves are created around one per year. It’s most important they drink their mother’s milk within the first few hours. This can be a special yellowish liquid known as colostrum that cannot be drunk by humans. It has numerous antibodies which help the calf to resist diseases. After around five days, the calf will have had adequate colostrum and will then drink normal cow’s milk for around ten months until it can nurture itself exclusively from lawn and other plants. When calves play, they run around, buck up or gently ram each other’s minds.
