Do you dehorn your dairy steers? Do you think it is worth the trouble when they will only have a short umm stay? We raise Angus cattle, and never have to worry about horns...
Our3 week old foster steer calf is out of a Jersey X Holstein cow by a Swedish Red bull. I know nothing of a Swedish Red. Anyone have any incite there? Ever feed one out? I figure he can stay until this time next year, when he will keep our freezer company.

One of our local holstien daries is breeding their heifers to Swedish Reds this year. I have one of the crosses and he is looking nice and stocky but not real heavy boned. I asked him what they compared to and he said they are between a jersey and a holstien. He's trying to get a shorter stockier milking cow, that will still produce like a holstien. Mines half hols. half Swedish Red. Lots of vigor and very healthy.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?
Oct 2, 2019 17:17:00 GMT -5
Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
