We use AI bulls with a good calving ease index. We had bulls in the past the we had to break out the chains and pull every one. Here is calf #3 all cleaned up

That first couple seconds once they are out I don't think I have ever not held my breath till I see them take in air and that head come up.

Glad to hear things went well for momma and baby.  I don't know much about cows but from what I have read on here and seen on TV birthing can be a real nightmare.  Congratulations!
