I assume the Vet said to expect a calf within 60 days?
No need to keep bumping her once you know.

Glad to know the Vet was unconcerned. Post a picture of the pair when she calves.

I learned something new today. I didn't know what bumping a calf was until reading this thread. I was afraid you were palpating her every day and bumping the calf that way. I'll be looking forward to the calf pics

I'm curious to know if your heifer calved? If not, were you able to get a Vet to look at her? Hope everything is okay
