Very sorry to hear that you lost the calf. If it is not too difficult, I certainly would like to know what happened. I lost the 1/2 jersey 1/2 guernsey heifer out of my first calf jersey heifer last year.... she was about a week old, and somehow when she laid down, rolled partway under the fence and got stuck. Didn't find her until she had been out in the hot sun nearly all day, and could not save her. Dehydration at that young age. It made me sick, but I couldn't change it. Of course the other heifer had a bull calf....
Are you milking her? Is she doing all right for you?

Going to start breeding AI in the next week, as soon as the weather breaks and temps drop. It has just been too hot.

We all lose some, it is part of it. Sorry you had to do it on the first one.
