Well Mazy had her horns burned off today and she will not stop Mooing! She does if I stay with her? I tried to put her in the barn, as it is very cold here today and she is shivering! She gets really upset and wants out of the barn, but I am not sure what to do as this is my first cow and all of this is new to me! I thought maybe someone here could let me know whats best for her? The DE-horning went really well, and she has canduela on and some banamine! I have never heard her moo so much, every 10 seconds! Should I keep her in the barn to warm her up? I tried to give her a small bucket of warm milk, she would not take it? Any help I will appreciate! Thanks in advance!

I suspect this is just stress from the trauma of the event, and that in 3 or 4 hours she'll be back to normal. The banamine should be giving her pain relief. Is she normally with her mother? If so, it may be more separation anxiety than horn burning.

I would say maybe seperation as well. I burned Porters horns, and he never made a peep during or after. no banamine either.

Mazy is not with her Mother. I think it was the trama as she is now laying down and has stopped mooing! I went to make sure she was alert, ears up, head up etc...As soon as I got close and she saw me, the mooing started! I think it might also be like "I am so mad at you and WHAT is going on?"
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.

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.

mamacherri10: good afternoon! I have not been on the website in a long time. Have a new jersey milk cow and am looking to see how long she needs to be dried up prior to calving? She is due the third week of May.
