Bred a group of cows 20-21 days ago. The weather is cool, rainy and cows are corralled in the yard now to see if they cycle again. We only caught one standing heat, but they don't want to jump each other (just lucky to see it) Even with heat patches, standing cow was only jumped a few times and patch never turned pink. I have a couple more cows with mucus smears. Does a small smear of mucus near their cycle always mean they are cycling?? That is my question.
