We usually wean the end of March. One cow I had, any time after Xmas that they were in the yards she would be right beside her calf, wouldn't let it get away from her. She knew it was getting close to time I would be splitting the calves off. Seemed to be worse with bull calves too, maybe the teenage girls just gave her too much $hit. She is gone now but one of her daughters is getting like that too.

:welcome: My first black angus cow I bought was very protective of her new born. I bought her at the sale barn because she was obviously on the wild side and nobody else wanted her. Bought her cheap and she settled every year with first AI service. She settled down after about two years but I would never trust getting near her or her newborn calf until at least a week after it was born. Finally sold her after probably ten calves because her udder dropped down so low that her calves had trouble finding teats. she always raised some of my best calves also. really kind of sad when she had to go.

Mine can't wait to get rid of their calves in the fall.. Oh, yeah, they make it sound like they miss them so badly for a couple days, but the way they come running to the corrals in the fall tells me otherwise
