Gonna make it - 4/14/2019 09:10 Several good comments here. I’ll try moving back to July tenth turnout see where that gets me. If I remember maybe next year we’ll see what brings more money
One problem with May 1 start of calving is that if next year is an early warm spring you will be tempted to put the bulls in earlier. BTDT. Then you have a spring like this one the next year and the yoyo starts all over again.
I think we need to remember this spring, circle a date on the calendar for bull turnout and stick with it. It is a lot easier to drop back on calving date than it is to pull it forward and a lot easier on most cows.
