When to move cows after AI?!
« on: May 07, 2015, 09:45:47 AM »
I have heard so many things about when the best time is to move your cows. I heard move them 72 hours after AI and I I've heard don't move them for 20 days. Opinions on what is the best time to move them after AI?

My experience is either move them ASAP (within 24 hours) or don't move them for 21 days.  I'm sure you'll hear lots of differing opinions though.

 ASAP after breeding or 30 to 45 days after. When the embryo attaches better to the uterus is what it amounts to after the first 72 hours.

My professors always said you have until day 5 to move them, then the embryo moves to the uterus. After that you need to wait until day 40 when the pregnancy  has attached and began developing.

Your professor is absolutely correct.  Good info!

I always tell my customers between days 4 and 45 is a no go. This is where forward planning pays and in reality i like to see them where they are going to be in 48 hours.

There are a lot of differing opinions on when is the best time to move cattle after breeding, but one could say "never" is the the best time.  These time frames are very arbitrary.  It really depends on what kind of changes the cattle we be going through during the move.  Are they going to be changing from a drylot situation to a lush green pasture, the cattle's disposition, the distance of the haul, the temperature and humidity during the move, etc.

In the end, every time you move cattle, or make changes, there is risk.  You have to do what best works for your resources you have, and the constrains in which you have to manage within. 
Winning isn't everything, but you have to want it.

How soon would you move them from a drylot to a lush green pasture?

Everyone will differ on this, but I agree mostly with the post regarding the professor's suggestion.  Have your mind made up in 5 day's where this cow is going and get her there. 

We AI ......and the next morning/evening or 24 hours we will move them.  Usually they go from lot to grass, and we notice no difference between moving from a dry lot to grass, vs. moving from grass to stay on grass.  Usually still remain a 65/70% succession rate on either scenario.
