    How much does your vet charge to pull a yak calf?

    We have a few ponies that we paid good money for, but we don't insure them for anything. Thought about getting medical insurance, but decided not to.

    I am the only Yak man in the state according to the State Vet department. I have had friends loose cattle due to stray bullets. During deer season. They aren't know for running ayak but we all know about my "good neighbor" so the liability ins id definite. To insure the cost of a lost yak or the entire herd. would be an additional 350.00 for the one's I currently have. The quote is based on what I paid for them. I will have to ask about any future calves. GOOD POINT

    Yaks are not supposed to need any assistance in calving. Calf size it 25 to 30 lbs. Out of a 500 plus pound cow. So the calves are very small.

    A novelty. Would someone want to steal them? I'd have cameras on them 24-7. Cameras might lower your insurance since it would help identify who or what caused the potential problem.
