By the sign of the moon

We had been asked a couple of times before if we wean our calves by the sign of the moon. No we did not. We weaned when it fit our schedule. Even though we had heard about weaning by the moon, we never tried it. Well the last time we weaned this summer, the cows and calves relentlessly bawled. So we said next time we would use the sign of the moon date. The date for Nov. started the 19. So we will see how these 5 calves do. The following is how the Farmer’s Almanac explains it:

According to Farmers’ Almanac tradition, when the moon is in the appropriate phase and place in the zodiac, it’s widely believed that activities will be more fruitful or lead to improved results.

  1. I've never heard of weaning by the moon, but it makes sense since everything else can be done that way. We weaned our small herd on Halloween, seemed a fitting day.
