    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?

    No. Normally, cows do not have an estrus cycle that early post partum. But certainly not going to adversely affect the bull. Ideally, if you want to control your calving season, the breeding age bulls are isolated from the cow herd until you turn them in.
