GnRH to restart the cycle, 7 days later the lute. Lue will cause her to ovulate if she has a viablle egg, but I would still do the GnRH first.

I'd try shot of Cystorelin and MultiMin myself, what do you have to lose?

Just cystorelin. It will knock of any possible cysts (though I do not think this is her problem). Lute will bring her into heat (knocks off the CL).

I am not saying AI, I am saying find a cheap embryo to put in her. AI is making her use her egg to conceive. An embryo is another cow's egg/sperm that is already 7 days since conception. If something is wrong with her eggs, putting a 7 day old fertilized egg in her will solve that problem, and reset her reproductive cycle for next year (so to speak, trying to keep it simple). The embryologist will be able to tell if she has scaring, or issues with her cervix. Someone who puts in embryos (embryologist) is not the same as someone who AI's. An embryologist is typically a vet, and has more training than an AI tech. We AI all of our cows ourselves, but I hire a professional to put our embryos in.

Do a search on google for embryo centers near you, or embryologist near you. You never know what you might find.

So with an embryo does the calf get anything from the carrying mother genetically?
She produces milk to feed it etc still?

Also would you have to be concerned about birth weight etc?

The embryo gets nothing genetically from the cow. The cow provides the womb, and milk when it is born. She will think it is hers, but genetically is has no relation to her.

She is a cow, correct? You should have no concern about size. Find a center near you, tell them about your cow, ask if they have a cheap embryo that will be of average size to try putting in her (the value will not be the calf, but getting the cow to carry a calf). If you want her to have a calf, it is worth the try. Hopefully, after she calves, she will go back to a regular cycle and get pregnant by your bull.

She is a cow yes but very small maybe 950- 1000 pounds. First calf was off of a low weight black angus bull. Second calf was off of a longhorn ish looking bull

Ck with your vet to see if he gave her Multimin or MuSe - a Selenium shot. I would highly recommend that if he did not.

Very first thing is preg check her to be sure before giving anything. Rarely they will still accept the bull even when really bred.

Normally a guy running enough cows to warrant needing 90 bulls wouldn't waste the time with one shy breeder.
