Question:

My neighbor's bull got in with a couple of my heifers and bred them. They have no EPDs on the bull, so I want to abort. How long after aborting can I rebreed?

Answer:

You have to wait at least a week, and my advice is to give it 10 or 11 days. Keep the heifers away from your bull during this time, just in case what you thought was heat is not the real deal.
