How much time lapse before weaning and reintroducing cows/calves

Postby sassafras manor » Mon Aug 27, 2018 3:30 pm

We have a cow that I am planning to butcher later this fall/early winter and was wondering at what point post-weaning I could add her back in with the calves to fatten her up some before her butcher date? Thanks
