|Siobhan, our Dexter heifer, 19 months old|
Finally about 6:30 p.m., Mitch came to do the AI. He said it's not unusual in weather like this (our thermometer said 98° but it was predicted to be 100°) for mounting behavior not to occur and for signs of heat to be suppressed. We had the wrong kind of heat!
I put a lead rope on Siobhan and she followed me into the head gate, neat as can be. Mitch commented on how docile she is. (That's my Dexter girl!)
So Siobhan has been bred to Taco, and next month will tell if it took. Hopefully we won't see T-Bone mounting her because that would mean she isn't bred and is coming back in heat.
With any luck, we now have two pregnant cows on the farm!
