We calved our AI cows first. I choose my AI cows and the AI sires hoping to get replacements, but it seems we usually get a high percentage of bull calves from AI. This year it was 9 bulls and 4 heifers. We have now begun calving the rest of the herd hoping for bulls to turn into steers for the commercial market. We started out with two heifers, a bull, three more heifers, another bull and then 8 heifers in a row. It was looking pretty bad at that point with 13 heifers and only 2 bulls, but it is starting to even out. We now are at 15 heifers and 8 bulls out of the commercial cows for a total of 20 heifers and 17 bulls. We always seem to get more heifers early in the calving season and more bulls towards the end. I think that may be due to slightly shorter gestation on the heifers.
