She’s not a great cow.

Black angus cows at sunsetIf you had an employee who did nothing for a year but drink your coffee, play your computer games and shoot the breeze with coworkers, would you keep that employee on the payroll?

Of course not. You wouldn’t support someone who wasn’t fulfilling his or her role.

So why keep a cow that didn’t get pregnant? It doesn’t matter how correct her conformation is, how solid her genetics are or how great of a cow she is supposed to be.

If she doesn’t have a calf, she’s not a great cow. She’s just an attractive lady with nice parents who is gobbling up your resources.
