Preg Checks and Mineral Orders
Before January 31st, please call the Buckingham Extension office at 434-969-4261 with your name, number of heifers and/or cows to be checked, BREEDING DATES, as well as their location. Due to the amount of area Dr. Meadows and Jennifer need to cover and scheduling, please do not indicate a time or day preference, unless a day absolutely will not work.
Dr. Andy Meadows will be here early March to pregnancy check heifers. All heifers that are sale bound should be checked at this time. The bulls need to be removed 30 days prior to pregnancy checks to allow for positive pregnancy determination.
The Heifer Sale will be April 28, 2023 (Please disregard date on the vaccination calendar). It is always the last Friday in April! All heifers and young cows must be fetal sexed to be in the sale. Once your heifers have been checked, please call the Extension office at (434) 969-4261 with the number you will be consigning to the sale.Cow dates will be late March. You may also have heifers rechecked that were questionable on the first test.
Please have your animals in place when Dr. Meadows arrives. It is best to be prepared early, as the schedule will be tight. If there are any significant time changes, we will let you know.
Mineral Orders have been mailed. Contact the Buckingham Extension Office with questions.
