How good of a cow is she? If she freshened with plenty of milk why not graft a calf on her? If she doesn't have much milk (Herefords will fool you on that score) send her down the road. I wouldn't breed her on her calving heat, I'ld wait till the second, primarily so the calf bed can get back into shape to carry another calf. As Omak says, it also depends on the feed situation.
