JPO":3ckk0d95 said:We are in the same boat here in Tx as far as the weather. I personally like to start our calving in late November and run though December into early January. The reasoning behind this is two fold. First, the calves are born before the cold rainy part of our winter and have a chance to get some age on them before that time of year gets here. Second, the calves after being weaned are ready to go to rye pastures in the fall. Thus in this area there is a ready market for the calves
