10-4 on the shot.
Kat for some reason I cannot open the other thread so if you have anymore questions just fire away.
I'm with Donna on the time limits for drying the cow off. I most generaly shoot for 8-10 weeks but as long as the cow is healthy and not lacking for vitamins or minerals then 6 weeks is plenty of time.
She needs the dry time to start building her system up.
Just keep her a trace mineral salt block so she has ready access to it. I always leave my cows out in the pasture til calf time so she will get plenty of good green grass.
Then I put them in a corral so she can exercise and get in and out of the shed if it rains.
