Can you weight tape her? It’s hard to judge a cow’s size from pictures. For instance, Rowie is just over a year old ~ she’s a little below 48 inches at the shoulder - so similar in height as your heifer ...her heart girth is 70 inches - pulled tight with her head up. She’s deep and thick. Approx 960lbs.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
If you measure her girth and post it, someone can check on their dairy breed weight tape and give a weight. Height at hip would also be handy. I use baling twine and mark with a sharpie, then measure it.

Hm, you do need the string to be non-stretch and pulled pretty tight - it doesnt take much to make a lot of difference. An inch too far back behind her elbows makes a lot of difference, too. You may ask how I know these things, lol, if you like to waste a bit of time.

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?

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.

mamacherri10: good afternoon! I have not been on the website in a long time. Have a new jersey milk cow and am looking to see how long she needs to be dried up prior to calving? She is due the third week of May.
