Monroe County’s New Year’s Baby

Monroe County’s New Year’s Baby

The first birth of the New Year in Monroe County is credited to the bull son of Foxie Roxie and Catapult Allscheid. The family has not yet named the New Year’s baby. The calf was born at 2:30 a.m., Jan. 1, 2018 at the Allscheid Farm off Andy’s Run in rural Waterloo. The bull weighed in at 81 pounds. 

His owners include Bob Metzger, and the Allscheids – Eric, Cindie, Cassie and Krista.

Everyone is happy the birth went fine, despite the frigid overnight temperature. "With the thermometer reading -4 when he was born, I think that bull would have like to have stayed in his mom’s womb a few more days until it warmed up, said Metzger.

Krista and Cassie are hoping to soon get the calf in training so it can win trophies and ribbons at the Monroe County Fair and other beef shows.
