How many straws of semen does it take to breed one cow? What does it mean when a cow was bred and then she "sluffed", is that the same as miscarriage? How many eggs does a cow produce when she is "flushed?"

One unit per service. Normally one service per heat. "Sluffed" in this context probably refers to failure to implant in the uterus.
The number of eggs produced by flushing is too highly variable to have a firm answer.

I have heard of as little as 4 eggs to as many as 40 eggs.
Big variance.
