We have simmentals and last years heifer will be A Ied tomorrow morning. Our steer was cut late and still has enough testosterone to detect her estrus cycle. I wanted a June calf for next year and hope she takes the first go-round. With our small herd we cannot afford to corral or feed a bull. We have a terrific Vet. who brings his catch chute and works well with the animals. I would have had her A I ed in March but she needed to grow more. With our cooler summer the steer and heifer have grown well. Does anyone have any experiences with the A I ing of cattle? I have heard of some taking 3 times or more to settle. In March we had the CDR insert and one of the cows scratched her behind on the fence and pulled one out a day too soon. The vet had to come an extra time for her and then again for the other 2. But they did all settle the first go-round.
