Schedule Replacement Heifer Preg Checks Now
For many years, in June, cow-calf producers are reminded of the need to schedule pregnancy checking of the spring-calving replacement heifers. Many Oklahoma ranchers choose to breed the replacement heifers about a month ahead of the mature cows in the herd. In addition, they like to use a shortened 45 to 60-day breeding season for the replacement heifers. The next logical step is to determine which of these heifers failed to conceive in their first breeding season.
