I find they usually catch up by a good month every year on their own

I have put Cidr’s in for 10 days to get late calvers bumped up. Recommend years ago and have had fantastic results doing it.
Cidr & GNRH at 20’ish days post calving. After 10 days pull Cidr and give Lute. Bred back via AI every time. Don’t see why it would be different with a live bull.

Cidr, GNRH wait 10 days, pull cidr, lute, heat detect for 80 hours. Breed all that show heat 12 hrs after detection. TAI all remaining at 80 hrs. GNRH at breeding.
I can’t quote numbers off the top of my head but I would say high 90% have settled right off. Same as regular for us. It not something I hesitate to use if needed it’s been that successful.

I pulled some cidrs today on some of these cows that are 30 days past calving. Problem is they smelled bad pulling out of these cows? Rotten smell, I have never noticed that before.
I imagine this is not good. I did not do anything different than usual

The cows haven't completely cleaned yet, I know our tech doesn't like to breed dirty cows
