LORETTO, Pa. (AP) — Moooove over, Ben Roethlisberger. There's a new No. 7 in western Pennsylvania.

The folks at Vale Wood Farms in Loretto have named a calf Baby Ben after the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback because the cow has a marking that looks like a No. 7 on its head.

The farm has posted the calf's picture on its Facebook page, and WJAC-TV (http://bit.ly/1ptyWT9 ) visited the farm about 70 miles east of Pittsburgh to see what all the fuss is about.

Carissa Itle-Westrick, the director of business development for the family-owned food-and-grocery farm, is hoping Roethlisberger won't mind.

She says, "Baby Ben is awfully cute, so hopefully Big Ben won't mind sharing his namesake."

The farm plans to display the calf when it opens its pumpkin patch for business next month.
