Sell her or eat her.

Why keep anything around that costs - ad might pass it on to the calf.

Use that cash to get another.

Every day you delay is another day wasted.

Cheers.

I'm pretty sure she is going to calve within the month. I'll keep you posted.

It has begun! Coldest day of the year, go figure. A balmy 4* Fahrenheit. We’ve got two feet soles down, so a good start. Now for the nose ......

Ended up with a successful birth this morning. Healthy bull calf out of a first calf heifer. I’d guess around 65-70 pounds. She even let me pick him up within minutes of giving birth to take him to the barn stall and dry him off. Momma and calf are doing great tonight.

I was talking with the guy I bought the heifer from. We both wondered if she had been pregnant but aborted during the year and he just didn't witness it? She's in good condition and had no problems having this calf. I guess we'll find out in a couple months if she gets re-bred.

Happens all the time. Sending good luck for a successful, timely re-breeding ;-)

Congrats and glad all is well. Hoping the next breeding goes good. Abortions happen and most are never seen.
