Does anybody have any insight on getting a cow to take more calves on? I've got one old Jersey that will let anything in the pasture nurse. Some of the others (Jerseys and Holstein cross heifers) will kick and head butt all of those that aren't theirs if they're in the pasture. On the other hand, all of my cows are content to raise orphans if they're standing at a feed trough or head gate. It just gets a little expensive on the feed bill letting a cow stand and eat 20+pounds of feed to get all the calves fed. I just wanted to get someone elses take on it since I've got four heifers due to calve in March.
