English term or phrase: springing
External signs and palpation
There are numerous anecdotes about legendary cattle producers who could detect pregnancy in cows by looking at signs such as the way a cow held its tail or by the hairs or dags at the vulva.
On closer examination none of these have proved any more reliable than tossing a coin. In very late pregnancy ///springing/// may be observed. especially in those about to calve for the first time. This is usually seen as swelling of the udder and vulva and a change in the animal's gait becoming "looser".

Study related to catlle fertility.

Thanks for your help.
