I have seen a weaned calf go back to Momma when she is dry then the calf becomes a robber. I hate milk robbers.

Unless the bull is running with the cow herd for the winter, all heifers go back with the cow herd at about 45 days or so post fenceline weaning. Through the years we've had exactly 1 go back to sucking.She started at about 18 months, well after the calves were born and weren;t that far from weaning. Fed her out and butchered her.
