Welcome to Titan, born at the Tilden Little Farm at precisely 4:55 p.m. on Tuesday to mother Sweet Pea. The male calf, who weighed about 90 pounds at birth, will stay at the farm for about six months, according to Farmer Stanley who works at the East Bay Regional Park District-owned farm.

Sweet Pea is a 5-year-old, prize-winning Milking Shorthorn and this is her fourth calf. And, according to Berkeleyside contributing photographer Nancy Rubin, who was present at the birth and who took the beautiful photographs here, Titan was standing before he figured out how to suckle.

If you’re interested in getting closer to nature, know that another one of the Little Farm cows is expecting in about a week.
