Hello from Decatur, TX

I have a cow that calved 2 weeks ago. I saw yesterday 1 of my bulls mount her. Will anything happend to either the cow or bull for him mounting her so soon after calving? I run Angus/Brangus cows with Limo Bulls.

Thanks for the help.

I can't think of anything that could happen...
Most cows can be bred extremely soon after calving. I see ALOT of pregnant cow with a calf at her side pairs being sold. That is probably the most common buy for a first time cattle owner...

It takes at least 30 days after calving for a cow's reproductive tract to return to normal. Therefore, some cows can be bred starting 45-60 days after calving. Your veterinarian should palpate the reproductive tract of each cow as soon after 30 days after calving as possible to make sure the cow is ready to breed.
