I have 5 cows that are starting to show slimy mucus. How far off should their calves be? The reason I ask is that we used a Scotchcap Angus bull this year. His genetics are not known for calving ease, so even 10 years of experience, has given me cause to worry about calving problems. Can anyone give me a good idea of when to expect these calves? Like I said even 10 yrs. in it and I'm worried, go figure. Thank You for any and all help.
