A lot of the people I have talked to around home (IN) have told me to cut back on the food one month before the cows calf. That all the, as lack for better words, food will go to the calf and make it get big and hard for the cow to have. Then on the other hand, everthing I read says they need more. Now I am talking about some guys that have doing this for some years. Is this just an old wise tale? What do some of you all have to say about this? It seams the more I learn the more there is to know! Thanks and, MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all.
