    98% of my calves come during daylight hours. I feed in the morning. Coyotes. The coyotes live with my cattle all year. The cows start calving about 9 a.m. and stop about 5p.m. I will usually have a few night calves after about 25 – 30 days of calving. I calve on pasture in April and May. I have also noticed that over the last few years, most calves are born within a couple hundred yards of where I feed. The more I let my cows be cows the better cows my cows become.
