I have a Dexter cow that is due now and last Wednesday just before I left on a mini vacation, I noticed her udder was huge looked like a jersey ready to milk. I asked DH to keep an eye on her I thought she'd deliver within a few days. When I came home Sunday, her udder was only half the size and the vulva looked a little gaping. I was sure she had delivered so I looked all over for a baby in hiding and couldn't find anything. She stays with the herd, moving back and forth between the barn and the 40 acres they have. I'm a little befuddled. Do they normally have the udder go back down in size? I'm thinking either she had it and lost it to a predator or ???? This is her first calf and it's hard to tell looking at her if there's still a baby in there.
