Fresh to the farm: Youngsters learn agricultural skills and responsibility by caring for calves

Del Norte kids learn how to raise a heifer and are introduced to the dairy and agriculture industries through the Bucket Calf Project, a 4-H Community Service Project hosted by Alexandre Dairy in Fort Dick. Participants will show their animals off at the fair. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
Bradley Tripp had worked with his calf Nibbler since June 17, visiting Alexandre Dairy every other day to feed and walk it, so when he was told to switch calves with another youngster last week, he grew nervous.

After a few minutes, though, the 8-year-old decided his worries were unfounded.

“This is as easy as my calf,” Bradley told his mother, Mavis Tripp.

“You can’t fall in love with somebody else’s cow,” Tripp retorted.
