I'm blaming it on lack of experience and a preference of having plans laid out. I know we're puny compared to majority of you but...
How do you guys patiently wait for calves from cows that are on the bubble of keeping or not? We only have a couple acres so I'm trying to be super picky on what we keep or cull.
Heifer didn't take her calf last year, she's nice enough that she got a second chance.
Crazy heifer gets to pop one out and she'll go to the butcher, timing depends on if she mothers or not.
Older cow (9) I'm watching her milk production this year.

I've never had one that would not take her own baby.
That one would make her gone like yesterday!
Round here anyway...
