The "In The News Section" is to share news links and discuss news items relevant to farming, raw milk legislation, organics, and nutrition.
Please review the KFC Rules of Conduct before posting.
KFC does not hold to any particular religious creed, our members represent many faiths. Please do not engage in or encourage religious debate or proselytizing on the main board. You are welcome to share thoughts of this nature, where you feel they will be welcomed or appreciated, in PMs. It is appropriate and welcome to offer prayers in support of a member's difficulties, especially if they have asked for them.
With the exception of topics that are directly relevant to farming or nutrition, KFC is not the place for political debate. For example, discussions on NAIS and raw milk legislation are appropriate. Discussion and debate of welfare reform, health care, abortion, etc. are not.
Other than noted directly above, violation of the rules will result in first, a warning. A repeated violation of the same rule will result in a one week suspension of posting privileges. Continual violation may, at the discretion of the staff, result in a permanent ban

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
