i had a nice visit yesterday with a friend of mine thats a 1st year ag teacher.he came out to look at my reg heifers and see how meny show prospects i had.we found 2 reg heifers for sure that would work.plus 1 possable calf if she is out of a reg cow.he got to see 2 reg cows that i bought off him a few years ago.i ended up selling him 1 of his old cows back because she is late calving this year.he got lucky as she is heavy bred.so he will get a calf from her.

why would i do that.she will most likely calve before he picks her up.the only thing that kept her from going to the sale is its to wet to get a trailer in.plus the fact we noticed she was springing.

You said she was heavy bred and he would get the calf off her. I guess if she calves there she's yours yet the calf will nurse and be raised by his cow?? how does all this work??

ok maybe i didnt make it clear for yall.once a cow gets a certain age and they miss calving for the year they go to the sale.this cow is 30 days late now but she is springing now.so she will have a calf.i assumed she was open and was going to cull her. i had to sell my herd bull 2wks ago.and if she wouldve came up then she wouldve been sold at the sametime.
