Re: BEET PULP AND BREEDING HEIFER ISSUES

Someone asked a question about breeding a "younger" heifer here on SP awhile ago & of coarse was given many opinions about whether or not to breed the heifer early. IMO quite a bit of the troubles getting breeding heifers bred is that if you can't get them bred early in the season and egg that embryo settled in place B4 the heat of summer along with the stress of pulling them around some to shows it becomes harder to get them heat detected properly tied up under fans & then bred and settled safe in calf. IMO start trying to get your breeding heifers bred early and possibly give them some time off until "safe" with calf.
  As far as the beet pulp effecting the pregnancy rates, I doubt that it would have any baring on them. I assume that PPL are feeding the beet pulp to maintain good condition. Most breeding heifers that are being shown or are being fed to show would have BCSs of 6 to 8 which is plenty of condition.
