Would you AI?
« on: May 18, 2015, 06:28:16 PM »
Had commercial cows in today to haul to grass and noticed one we'd AI'd last couple years was riding a few cows nonstop. They only jumped her a couple times. Ran her down to our AI group, but she hasn't shown much/any heat activity in this pen. Would you AI her in the AM or think it wasnt a true heat?

If you observed her standing when they jumped her then yes I would breed her early a.m.   If she was moving then I would hit her tonight and then again a.m..

I think I would have to see more evidence from her than just her jumping other cows. The other cow might have been in heat to cause that also. Is there evidence of discharge? Evidence of ruffled hair on her tail head area from being ridden? I've had many pregnant cows act like this and have hormone issues.

She was jumping multiple cows, none of which were "standing" for her. However the couple times she was jumped she "stood". Also, after I posted this we caught her getting jumped a couple times in the AI pen so we went ahead and bred her in the AM. Everything felt normal, so I guess we will find out next spring! Thanks!
