The Name the Calf Contest is a beloved staple of visiting Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery.
However, with the COVID-19 situation, Barstow’s is operating as a drive-thru service only farmstand. In-store amenities like the name the calf contest is temporarily unavailable.
But our new girls need names!
There are about 100 heifer calves born each year on Barstow’s Longview Farm! Every calf born gets a number and is inputted into our computer system so we can keep track of her for her entire life on the farm. Each one of our animals has her own distinct personality, and to honor that, we make sure each calf gets a name. To make it even easier to keep track of them, calves born around the same time have names that begin with the same letter.
These calves were born in the first half of May and need names that begin with the letter I.
Names should be respectful and under 9 letters. All of the calves are female.
Contest winners will receive a photo in the mail of their calf and a coupon for one free kiddie ice cream, cookie, or mini cupcake from Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery.
