Baking soda?? I'd much rather smell cow poop than any perfume. Marsha
Slather that dear cow in poop and you’re all set!!😂🤣
NO DON'T !! Once my dog had eaten a large quantity of horse manure. Her breath was unspeakable. I thought maybe a peppermint would be like a breath mint. The resulting peppermint/manure breath about killed me.
Perfume/ manure mix may be just as awful. Any perfume makes me nauseous.

That reminds me of the bird we had when I was a child. The bird got wet and didn’t smell very good so mama put a dab of perfume on him. Then he smelled worse. He got renamed to “dirty bird“. Dirty bird was a very personable creature and love to get right up under your nose. We tried not to hang out with dirty bird when he got wet.

I thank everyone for ideas. If I had a heated place is scrub her good but I use olive oil on my hands then wash that off with hot soapy water. She only got milked once today. I just couldn't this morning. I had a horrible night. The hurting just builds after every exposure. Pain meds do not touch it. I've been told pot might. Not legal in Iowa . But I'm about ready for illegal. She was just as strong tonight as yesterday. How can people put that stuff on their bodies?

My son who found the bottle said it was shaving lotion. But it's bad. raerae I've smelled some pretty stinky people but no one was close to this stuff. Natural body oder can be bad. But this stuff makes me hurt.

You want to talk ick, headache and pain, shaving lotion. DH likes to wear it when he goes places and I get sick. He comes back and gets no hugs or kisses too the clothes are in wash and he showered. Even then the residual smell means I'll sleep in living room. He keeps it in his vehicle which I can't use...
Does hanging a heavy blanket over her help? You could sure it out in between milking. What about milking with latex gloves so you don't contact it? I wish we could help from afar..
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.
