This may be a dumb question, but I have a cow that I bought at a sale that was a recipient for an embryo. She had that calf in December and I was wondering if she will breed back just like any normal cow.

If no problem with birth, infection or anything, no real reason why she won't. Sometimes a farmer will do an embryo because he hasn't been able to get her settled , but usually it is just that they needed recips and she just got an egg. If she doesn't breed back easily, then a reason to sell.
