One of my heifers is extremely easy-fleshing. She is one of those that we placed with the bull at 12-13 months, and on my worst pasture, she is sleek and fleshy. She was bred about the first of June, I believe. It is a well-known fact that a cow will calve easier if she is on the moderate side of fleshy. How do I moderate the condition of this heifer before she calves when she is fat on sorry pasture that needs a weed-killing program? (which I have started.) She is tame as your pet dog, and one of the thickest I have ever produced. I'm excited about what her calf will be like, but I don't want to pull it.
