I just bought 2 Beefmaster heifers yesterday. One is 6 months old and one is 8 months old. Niether of these heifers are weaned and they were still sucking on their mommas when I picked them up. They have bawled like crazy since I dropped them off in the lot yesterday and they both broke out since last night. I have them and the rest of my cows in the lot right now tryin' to calm them down. How long does it take to wean these heifers? I have bought young calves straight off the teat before and never had a problem like this. I bought these young heifers because I knew the momma cows and they were pretty docile and broke to checkers (range cubes). Those Beefmaster cows must be pretty good mommas for these young heifers to miss them like they do. Does anyone have any advice for me?
