Customer Question

will a cow get pregnant every year? if she has a calf 1 year and doesn't the next does that mean she won't have any more calves?

Expert:  Dr. Todd replied 2 years ago.

Yes, a healthy cow can become pregnant each year, and

if she does not have a calf one year she can still have a calf the following year.

Expert:  Dr. Todd replied 2 years ago.

I answered your question promptly.

Payment would be appreciated.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

she was real young when she had her first calf, which was last year but she didn't have one this year. How many years should we give her to have another calf before we consider her unable to have another one?

Expert:  Dr. Todd replied 2 years ago.

What is her weight?

What breed is she?

Was she bred this year?

Expert:  Dr. Todd replied 2 years ago.

I have answered you questions promptly and thoroughly.

Payment is appreciated.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

1.i don't know her weight for sure, but she looks like she's about the same weight as the other cows her same age.

2.mostly angus with a little herford mixed in.

3.they said the bull was riding her several times during the breding period, so we are pretty sure she was.

Expert:  Dr. Todd replied 2 years ago.

Before you breed her, vaccinate her against Leptospirosis, IBR, BVD, and PI3.

You should vaccinate all your cows and heifers.

Make sure the bull bred other heifers that became pregnant.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I think she has been vaccinated. I will check and yes the bull was the one that she had her calf from last year.
Expert:  Dr. Todd replied 2 years ago.
If she has been vaccinated and booster vaccinated a year later and if the bull has sired calves with other heifers and cows, you should have her examined thoroughly by a veterinarian to see if her reproductive tract is normal.
