The birth of a calf
Giving birth to a calf. Humans should not be calving.
Cows have their calves during a specific season, all within a few months of each other. Ranchers now run their bulls in with their cows for a limited time so that it limits calving season. This way, when it is time to round up the weanlings and sell them, they are all approximately the same age.
