    Sorry I didn't see this until this eve. And so, congrats, that she is confirmed bred. I would have said yes by looking at her udder and that the breeding date would have made her due in late Aug/early Sept.. Realize that jerseys often go a few days sooner than the "due date" but first timers are a crap shoot. They will calve when they are ready. She looks to be of good size and I am thinking you probably bred her AI to a jersey? So the calf should be slender and not cause any undue concern with calving. Best of luck and keep us posted.
