Bred most the heifers to a hereford. The others exposed to several simmental bulls. The most senior sim bull has a white face and stamps most his calves with at least some whiteNice looking calves! What kind of bull did you breed to? Seems like they are all throwing white somewhere.
My cows have a rough date of Sept. 13th as a due date. Hoping they start coming soon. Like you all said above it's the best time of the year when calves are hitting the ground!
I've had pretty good luck leaving them on the cow. They'll probably be on the smaller side but combined weight will be more than a single. I will monitor the cow and be ready to put her in the barn for some supplemental feed if she loses condition. She's going into fall pretty fat though, so hopefully she won't need help.Nice looking calves! You keeping them both on the cow or going to pull one and bottle feed it? I've never had any luck with a cow taking both calves. Some have tried but after a month or so they get so sucked down trying to feed both calves. Now days after a day or so I pull off one and bottle feed or sell it to someone who buys bottle babies. Maybe just my luck idk.
