Observation while they are on the patio is the easiest way. Milk production may be down, cow will be restless, maybe calling, act fidgity, vaginal discharge, etc. But a good herdsman does sort of "just know" without being able to pin down exactly what signs he/she may be seeing without Consciously really knowing what they are.
