That doesn't sound so good. I'm glad you had the colostrum for it. Those cows who won't let them nurse are a pain. I hope getting her started doesn't take too long and she gets used to it. Having a baby and all that edema in the udder is painful. As a mom who's been there three times, I appreciate what animals go through when having babies.
Dont worry. I am very careful. I always carry something with me and theres bale rings in there we can hop in if we need to.
No it doesnt. The poor little guy had a rough start. Hopefully he pulls through.
