We turned our cow Bugsy in with the bull on June 1st took him out June 21st when is the soonest she will calve? While I was out there a minute ago I noticed she has a little mucous and her bag is starting to fill out. She never has mucous, and she is just starting to look floppy in the rear. Oh I cant wait, thinking heifer thoughts!!

Hey thanks guys. This is her second calf. I took lots of pictures last year to comapre to. We bought her when she was close to calving last year. She still has a ways to go as far as her udder but she is starting to look closer. Counting the days...

Wow Ann if you think about it like that it is easy. I will remember that for future refrence. Now to go calculate all my cows due dates. -Oh and I bumped her this morning felt a big calf in there kick back so we are definately on track for a March calf.
ladybelle: I have a question if anyone can help out. I have to adult cows that keep nursing on each other. Can you suggest anything I can do to get them to stop doing it. Thank you

wyomama: ladybelle, post a thread in the Family Cow section. Weaning rings might work. They make permanent ones.
