Good news and thanks for letting us know the outcome! Pity you only got one calf, but as Ruth says, getting 100% from 2 straws and 2 inseminations would be exceptional. Are you going to keep her?
I wasn't too far out on my colur prediction-white tip on the tail comes from her Hereford background, as does the white face.

Here is an example of an 'orangey brown' calf from a black cow! These are purebreds and several generations pure too!

B names -Betty, Bracken, Bella, Bonny, Bluebell, Boronia,

Yes we are gonna keep Barbie our empty and give her another try this coming season. We'll have her checked prior to winter and if she is not in calf then she will go.

When our AI expert came up the other day to check everyone out he said she was cycling and it was pretty obvious once he pointed it out to me, clear jelly like stuff coming out vulva :o, so yes she'll definitely get another chance :D

Some good B names there, thanks.
