I noticed that ours are hitting the ground 2-3 weeks earlier than normal. Talked to 3-4 other farmers and they all said the same thing. Has anyone else noticed this.

We often start calving 2 weeks or so earlier than the due date. We actually anticipate it any more seems to be the norm.

No I mean they are earlier than previous years with the bulls being turned out on the same date. They bread back faster

My "spring" calving kicked off earlier this year. Same with a lot of people around here. But we chalked it up to the epic freeze.

Same blood lines for the most part, good bulls but nothing spectacular. I try to get from the same breader every year. I’m not concerned, just an observation.
