I was the veterinarian for a livestock company in the northwest. We had 10,000 cows on 6 ranches in 5 states with a progressive, well-managed cow/calf operation. The year was 1976.

In October I preg-tested our cows in Owyhee county Idaho. The conception rate was 92%.

Albert managed that set of 2,000 cows and he was concerned…it should have been 94%. We discussed it. I thought 92% was pretty good and he conceded the range was worse than last year. I made no effort to find a cause.
