Should i begin to get slightly worried

Cow served on 21 July 2020 to a lim'young bull - hence the survey from a certain ai company's

Still no closer to calving today, have put my arm in, all normal.


Wouldn't be the first time said company has inseminated a cow to a different bull. And the endings never turned out great when it did happen.

That's my thinking. Looking at the survey questionnaire. The young bull is Tomschoice Pavarotti.

When you say all normal - are you sure it's still alive? I've known it that the calf has died inside but not cause any ill effects.
