I'm impressed he threw out a date as opposed to "probably 4-6 months", etc. Is this the same vet the palped your Granny? If so, his game has improved :p

Same one. He's usually within a week one side or the other. That deal with Granny was a fluke, that's why I keep harassing him about it. When he palps he will give number of days bred then I calculate back to what that date is and add the gestation length to it to come up with due dates.

I know he'd probably miss the due date on a lot of my cows that like going 295-300 days gestation.. I'm patiently (ok, not so much) waiting for one now at 292..

Yes, that's the one , I can't believe people sit and watch that cam.

Sounds like someone missed the breeding date, and lots of people have too much free time. :lol2: Heck, I'll let people pay to get text updates when my cows calve like they were doing for that darn giraffe. Might be a way to pick up some income with the markets being off... :lol2: :deadhorse:
