Together, they are highly protective of one another - often reacting as a group to a perceived threat - and will go to great lengths to protect their calves. The new additions to the herd are typically born between mid-April and May. Weighing up to 25 kilograms at birth, the red-colored calf is able to walk and run within a few hours of its arrival.

During the calf's first year of its 15- to 20-year life span in the wild, the cow serves as its primary caregiver, nurturing and protecting it from such predators as wolves and mountain lions.
