Sorry if the answer to this is in here somewhere, I've searched and searched to no avail. My cow's heifer calf is about 2 1/2 months old right now, and I'm wondering if it is too soon to wean her... she's drinking water and eating hay and a little grain and is strong, healthy and growing like a weed. I would like to leave her on her momma longer but here's the deal... the gentleman that I normally get my hay from has been unreachable, and I can't find anyone else around here with the type of hay I need, so to get the hay I need, I'll have to travel farther and pay more. In essence, I could really use the money I'd get from the calf right now (or the hay if I'm able to trade her for the hay) but I don't want it to be detrimental to her. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
