For a cow-calf operation, good reproductive rates are critical to operational success and profitability. It is generally expected that each breeding-age female in the herd produces a healthy calf each year and successfully raises each calf until a planned weaning time.

Cows that do not produce calves on at least an annual basis use resources that could be better used to support more productive cattle. Closely monitor cattle reproductive efficiency to identify and address reproductive problems quickly. This helps protect and improve operational profitability.
