I've heard all about bloat, but do cows get stomach aches occasionally as well? What are the symptoms? One of my cows will occasionally lie down for a moment, get right back up, kick at her belly, pass gas, etc. She showed me a nice cow pie so at least that's in working order. I don't want to worry needlessly, but I have not observed this in my cows before. They are eating free-choice hay and some alfalfa and grain, but just yesterday were let into a field with a patch of fresh green clover.

mocha: I just was looking around for some answers when I came across this board and found it very informative. Our Jersey cow has a calf about a week ago and I am not getting much milk from her..a litre maybe. What can I do?
