Miss Moo appears to have lost another calf, only 33 days in. :( So disappointing. From a production standpoint our vet would recommend us putting our money into a bred heifer or a heifer to be bred, but understands if we want to try again. We will try again because there are too many factors that may be influencing breeding her - her getting into the moldy hay and her getting her head stuck surely didn't help! So in three weeks time we will try a different bull semen, probably a Dutch Belted, since Grumpy the Guernsey bull isn't working. Sure hope we can get her bred because I cannot imagine culling (killing) Miss Moo at this point and not sure how/when we can get another cow or heifer.
Having a bull here on our property or sending her somewhere with a bull scares me. We need the AI to work.
I will pray it starts working out for her.. may I ask why you would have to cull (kill) her, if she doesn't produce a calf? No judging.. just curious and not familiar..
