Lost two calves in a row this year, first dead calves in 3 years. And we haven't lost a cow in 9 years. Our calving success is 97.4% for the last 10 years, we breed for live calves not high weaning weights. At least a third of our herd is sale barn cows that I bought and have weeded through, it's better to be lucky than good.
Y'all have some nice cattle, but acre for acre we make more money off our land than most. I don't do this for the sport of it.
If we'd of know this we'd of picked our own cotton.

I meant to ask you! You started this thread. Is this subject just a curiosity or are there issues occurring in your herd that indicate a lack of hardiness - such as poor condition, feet problems, disease, etc?
No problems in our herd besides the cows only have one calf a year.
guess it's a good thing that they do.. Can you imagine the market..bad enough with my sparse offerings
someone said I should follow my dreams,,so I went back to bed...
