You may wonder why we separate the calf and it's mother so soon after birth. There are a few answers to this question: 1) the mother cow can pass along a disease to her baby, 2) she could accidentally step on or lay on her calf and injure of kill it, and 3) we also want the cow to eat and drink to gain back her strength after the delivery. So we want to keep both mother and baby safe and comfortable.
After the baby is born we also feed it 2 bottles of colostrum (a new mother's milk). They are always really hungry after they're born. And this is easier and safer to do for the human and calf when the mother is separate.
A few days later, he's still cute and is walking very well.
