Yeah. I knew it was too good to be true!If he had eaten, he might not have wanted to come to the pen and she felt okay leaving him if she has claimed him... but it does depend on the size of the pen/lot. She might have been willing to claim him, but he probably doesn't realize who momma is yet. Think of how long you kept her penned with the other 2.
Hey thanks!!You hit a homerun on her that's for sure.... and she got a wonderful home too!!!! Congrats.
Agree.... I am going to give my nurse cow some down time after she raises this single bull calf from the prolapsed heifer that died; after weaning off and selling the other 3 she already raised. She is being so good about it... I palpated her and think she is short bred... could be up to 3 months... I did not feel a big calf in her as the bull was in there for awhile after the spring group calved, then out and then back in the first of the year. I hope she is only short bred. Regardless, if she is open, the pasture she will be going back to, the bull will be going back in in late June, so she will have a chance to get bred then if she is not now. She has been a sweetheart and deserves a rest.... the calf will come off in early fall... but she will be getting fed a little bit better since we have moved some out of that pasture and there will be more grazing this year... and I will be feeding her a little grain along for a few months and the calves in there now are coming in for some creep grain so hopefully this little one will start coming in too once he gets it all figured out.I'll let e1 know how they do come sale time.
I dont know if I wanna try a 2nd set on her or not this time. I want some condition on her going into winter. And i think after previous owner, she deserves some down time. .
