First time heifer, any day know

My Crazy little cross bred heifer is due any day now. The day I seen the bull chasing her around the pasture I added 285 days and it worked out to a Feb 17Th due date. She is all bagged up and springing. First picture is short time after being bred. Second picture is today. I was kind of hoping for a Valentine days baby but don't think its going to happen. No mucus yet and most of my cows loose the mucus plug the day before giving birth. Really looking for a nice bull calf this year but a heifer will do as long as its healthy.

Looks like she's making a good little bag, hope you have good look with her, sometimes heifers can be a little problematic with that first baby.

She is nice looking heifer. You said she is a crossbred, what is she crossed with?

I don't realy know what all is in the cross. I bought her from a bucking bull contractor. She is out of one of those Doctor Proctor clones and Coyote Berger bred cow. Here ear tag has Doctor Proctor, Coyote on the front and Coyote berger on the back. I asked what all the cross was and the ansew I got was not a lot of horned cattle. I know from her ear she has some Brahman in the works. I tried to google Doctor Proctor but was unable to find what all he was crossed with.

What a beautiful little heifer! I love the brindles. I can't wait to see new calf pics. I'll cross my fingers that maybe she surprises you with a new little one tomorrow! :) :)

She has a little of that dirty tinted clear mucus stringing out this afternoon. So I am keeping my fingers crosses for a day time calf tomorrow.

Is anything happening?

Not a thing. She is bagged up and teats are full. I don't think her hind end could get any looser.
