why was 3 lutalyse injections given? is this common procedure to use for a cow with a bull?
I would also question this, maybe one initially when she was put out to try and get things rolling but were subsequent ones given too hastily and caused the loss of some early embryos????

I agree some people did jump in a bit but you were not clear with what had happened and the opinion you sought. Don't be too hasty of your judgement of us.

Ken,
I had the same questions, at what point in the pregnancy can ultrasound detect (~30 days) what if the embryo was less than 30 days old, you give a shot and flush that one out, then you repeated that process 2 more times. I might have given the first one but after that I would have let the bull do his thing without more drugs. One question for the Missouri doc, put yourself in the buyer shoes. You have a cow calf pair you just bought, at 4 months the cow should already be a month pregnant and then she doesn't get pregnant in how many more months? Then the owner wants to charge you for the drugs that might have kept her from getting pregnant? Not this guy.... nope.

My question would be, why the cow wasn’t already bred back if calf was 4 months old at time of purchase?

I asked the same question. I don't think the OP wants to hear our thoughts.
Even if he posted the info wrong, and the cow had a newborn calf by her side, he spent 4 months with the help of a vet to get her bred.
