    Yesterday we had the breeder out for a cow that was in heat. He got here shortly after we got home and ended up stopping by the house to tell me that she was pregnant and he figured she settled by her October breeding. She had also been bred in December.

    That crazy cow is showing signs of heat every other month even though she is bred! :rolleyes:

    There is a risk that she could loose the calf because of coming in heat. Hopefully, not though. :fl

    I'm sure our vets can tell you many stories about the rare things we seem to have happen here but, that isn't one. Like wynedot said, it's not that rare. Usually it doesn't last this long though, just the first reg cycle or two.

    The breeder found a calf the right size for her October breeding. He's been breeding cows long enough I will take him at his word.
