We put bulls out on heifers for 60 days, then preg check as soon as possible and sell the open cattle. 60 days may seem like a short time, but it has been my experience that if they don't breed in that time frame as heifers, they will be slow breeders the rest of their life. We were also out of grass and water until last week, and needed them off the payroll. 12 inches of rain the next day!!! It saved us from total ruin.
