There are many practices that pay dividends for a commercial cow-calf operation, one of which is having a short calving season. Having calves in a short window has many bonuses including concentration of labor and a higher-value calf crop. Achieving a short breeding season is the result of optimum management of heifers, cows and bulls, as well as taking advantage of technologies like artificial insemination (AI).
