First calf heifer problems can be a major concern for cow/calf producers or any cattleman who has heifers calving for the first time.
Avoiding first calf heifer problems should be a priority subject not only for the cow/calf operator but discussed thoroughly with every employee or participant in the calving season. Calving first time heifers requires more attention, more calving knowledge and more skill than the mature, experienced cow calving which often occurs without any problems.
