I have six cows with calves (aprrox.6-7 months old). I was unable to get the cows bred back when I should have. Now it's December and I'm finally able to get rid of the calves and get them bred back. My question is would I be better off to sell all of them now and buy six cows that are bred back for spring? I have enough hay to feed them for another month or so and thought I might be better off getting them sold when the hay runs out. I have access to plenty of hay, thats not aproblem. Seems to me if I keep the cows and get them bred back now, I'll have 6 cows to feed for 9 months with all cost. I would rather have calves in the spring so the mothers nutritional needs are taken care of by pasture. What would you do to come out best money wise. These cows are mixed not purebreed beef. Thanks for any advice.
