After deciding to keep three heifers to add to my small heard of three, should a person wean them or just let mommy? If me when and how long? Also what shots should I give them? They were born on and right after Easter. Thanks.

Some cows will wean their calves, some won't. It's better to wean them at around 6-7 months. Talk to your local large animal vet for what vaccinations, etc. are right for your area

Give them Bovashield 4, 1 shot pasturella, and pour them with dectomax 2 to 3 weeks prior to weaning. This will prevent them from getting dust pneumonia and shipping fever.
