Getting First-Calf Heifers Rebred on Time
Heather Smith Thomas
It can be a challenge to get first-calf heifers rebred without losing ground. They often calve later the following year or come up open. The two-year-old is nursing a calf, still growing and needs good nutrition and body condition to cycle on schedule after calving. Two-year-olds need more care and management than mature cows.
