Excerpt from Cattle: Their Management, Treatment, and Diseases
It is a common custom to breed from heifers at too early an age; this is to spoil the cow. The heifer should not be under two years old when taken to the bull; and even then it is as well to let her go dry sooner than older cows; indeed, if she be younger, this is imperative for the tax upon the immature animal by the calf she has borne, and the drainage of the milk from the system subsequently, tend to arrest her growth and due development. A young heifer, moreover, cannot be expected to produce a fine calf.
