Which Comes First, Calving or Rebreeding?
Regardless of which takes priority in your mind, calving and rebreeding success is always in season. You’ve heard the dilemma, “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” A similar dilemma plays out in the cattle industry each year as we start preparing for calving season. Which comes first, calving or rebreeding? You might put all of your eggs in the calving “basket,” since a live, healthy calf is often first priority. But a calf is ultimately the result of a successful cattle breeding cycle, and preparation for calving and rebreeding should occur simultaneously.
