I'm really stumped at this point. We have had great success with goats, pigs, rabbits and poultry but we can't seem to get a cow bred to save our lives. We bought 2 bred cows when we moved here 4 years ago, they were both beef mixed breeds. One dropped a nice red calf the other one had a dwarf. We had a bull in to breed them he was here for 4 months. Neither of them got bred. We sold them and started looking at either Dexters or Highlands. We bought a Dexter cow with a calf at her side who was already bred back almost 2 years ago. We also bought a Highland heifer and bull calf. The Highland heifer turned out to be sterile, took her to the Vet, did hormone treatments nothing (her uterine tract never developed). She went in the freezer. Our Dexter can't seem to stay bred as I posted below. She has a heifer calf that we'll try to breed here in the next few months to calve at 2 yrs. So we've invested $2,600.00 not including Vet and feed and put 4 small cows in the freezer and milked one cow for over a year. Anyone else had this much bad luck and had it work out in the end?
