Due date is Mar. 10, but apparently we are underway. Had a heifer deliver a set of dead twins in the night and a cow managed to get on her back and expire.
So it begins! :shock: :lol:

Cows are cheap, just buy some more. :D

For the heifer you could try to pick up a $500 bummer, could be a bit of a profit in that......if it lives. :wink:

I feel your pain, been there and done that. My dad always told me that a bad start makes for a good end. Hope your luck gets better..........

i've heard from a few in this neck of the woods that there are alot of early calvers so far. some groups of heifers 75% calved out by their due date. with the nice winter we've had, i'm guessing nutrition has alot to do with it. maybe i'm wrong............

No, no, no Silver, I told you I had all losses covered already... I had the dead twins 10 days ago, and a dead cow this week. You should be fine from here on out :wink: .
