Ok so Bessie is due to calve anytime and I just went out to check on her and she has about 10 inches of discharge/mucus coming out of her vulva and instead of the normal clear, it is white, like a milky color. Can anyone tell me what this is and if its ok or bad

God we can only hope!~ And how long after she looses her mucus plug can we expect her to have said calf? Im supposed to be away from home all day tomorrow but with it being her first calf I don't wnat to leave her at home to go it alone!
You can plan on her calving when you leave. Actually never know how long it will take. Let us know when your babe arrives.

I really hope you have a calf on the ground by now! You "may" want to consider not being gone all day or having someone check on her or coming back yourself. You would kick yourself if something happened. But wow, I really think you may already have a moo baby! hope so!
Is Bessie a cow or a heifer? who was she bred to? Beef or Dairy? How are all the signs? How old is she and in what condition ? all these factors need to be considered so you will know what to expect and such...

Chatty Kathy: I've been out of the KFC, milking mass quantities. I cannot seem to find Joann's current diary entries and saw a post asking how she is doing. She has been such an inspiration and help to me. I'd like to know how she is.
