I was surfing around on YouTube and found this video from the Vermont Yak Company. Apparently, one of their "royals" gave birth this morning. Here's a video of the little baby yak, courtesy of Rob Williams.
Seven Days Food Editor Suzanne Podhaizer profiled the company in April.
Vermont’s iconic cow has got competition — if Rob, a Champlain College professor and the editor of Vermont Commons, has anything to say about it. “I sort of see yaks as the quintessentialVermont bovine,” he suggests. “They’re really adaptable, verysurefooted, fierce and protective, and they love the cold. It’s aperfect fit.”
Welcome to the world, baby yak.
