Karma is going into heat. I just did an archive search for my last post when she was raising her tail and showed signs of unease by standing and lying down. At the time I was certain she was bred. It was three weeks ago. I dried her off in May This means that she did not take when she was Ai'd back at the dairy. She did not take with my Angus bull and she did not take with my neighbor's Angus bull for the three months she was on his pasture with her two adopted heifer calves. My vet is coming this afternoon to palpate her but I am certain what I am seeing is heat. What can be wrong? Please help me so I make this farm call worth the time and expense. What might be causing the infertility? Am I doomed to a sterile cow?Is there anything I can check for or do? My vet is a good cow vet but this is beef country. Dunno if he has much experience with Jerseys other than with mine. I'd also like to know what if anything can be discussed with the dairy I purchased her from. I just spoke to them two weeks ago about a heifer calf and he indicated cautiously that the springers he purchased, of which mine was part of, all had problems because they were "too young." I paid $1200 for her in milk. I said nothing when she turned out not to be bred. I don't blame them but this is a setback now. Is it just another stroke of bad luck for me? Thanks in advance.
