A local farmer is asking the public to help name his newborn calf.

The baby holstein heifer was born Saturday at Goodale Farms in Aquebogue to mom Lila at 6:38 p.m. She came into the world already weighing 82 lbs. 6 oz. and 34 inches tall. She nursed from her mother for one day and is now being bottle fed her mother’s milk, four pints four times a day, said owner Hal Goodale III.

Mr. Goodale is asking people to send in names by Saturday, Dec. 3rd. Email hal@goodalefarms.com.
