A person who tends grazing cattle
No, unless the average weight of the main cowherd is 1000 lbs, which then the heifer is 60% of the average cowherd weight. But, if the average mature weight of your herd is a bit higher, then definitely not, as she is obviously too young and too light to be bred. If she's bred already, inject some Lutalyse in her NOW.
No. A bull will actually sometimes act as a babysitter while the other cows are off grazing, if he's allowed to be in with the cowherd all year round. There has never been any reported cases of bulls killing baby calves.
Standing heat can last from 2 to 6 hours. The mating process itself only lasts for a couple seconds, but a cow can be bred repeatedly during this phase by several bulls, if there's more than one bull in your cowherd.
Most bulls are castrated to prevent any inferior genetics from being passed from him to the cowherd. Bulls that are inferior as far as ADG ability, temperament, forage convertibility, and conformation is concerned, should not be used for breeding. Also they can be quite aggressive and quite dangerous because of the testosterone levels.
Selective breeding is done in cattle because cattlemen and breeders with their cattle herds and/or breeds they care for and manage are always improving the genetics and productivity of their animals. Every breed has its faults, so cattlemen and farmers are always selecting animals to improve the cowherd and culling out those that are not improving the herd.
