Hate twins with a passion
Anyone who wants twins has not been around cows long enough nto experience the bad that comes from them

is that a 4 strand fence? Does your neighbor have cattle too?

I am just curious as to what your breeding season is ,and are you a seed stock producer ?
As far as fencing, some of you must have shYtty cows and Shytty neighbors, as that 4 strand will do just fine, especially if one has a little heat to it.
Like Mo said, it is the year of the twins and the triplets.
Herf babies are way too cute.
Consider yourself lucky. Very few can say that. I had two sets of twins this year and both sets were aborted about 6 weeks prior to the due date. If that wasn't bad enough they were out of two of my best young milk cows. They both hit the road because I can't afford to run a cow that isn't producing squat with prices the way they are. I would hope I have nothing but singles from here on out but that likely won't happen.Hereford76":2f99b21j said:Never lost a twin calf born here, never had a set of twins born dead, or had to pull one out.
Same here Knersie, I have a good 4 yr old cow that has had 2 sets of twins, both mixed sexes. Luckily the bulls have always tested good.KNERSIE":3ku5brsy said:It seems that whenever I really want a heifer out of good cow I end up with a mixed set of twins.
