our dairy cow was bred July 29. When do we expect the new arrival, please? Thanks
My gestation table says May 7..
Figure nine months and three weeks from breeding and you won't be far off.
An aside. Before he died an old timer neighbor told me when they had their sow bred he would make a notch at the base of his thumbnail. When it grew out to the end he knew she was near birthing. Old saying on a hog is: three months, three weeks, three days and 3 o'clock in the morning.
We figure nine months, ten days for our Jerseys and crosses.
I simply google calf gestation or something similar and several calving calculators come up......
