I see twine/net wrap in the last photo. This can kill/cause issues if digested.....(I'm anal about picking it up [ask my DH] and out of the animal area. Hence why I always notice it when it's where it shouldn't be. ) But you did a good job--yes, keep an eye so she doesn't get infection. If she runs a temp, give the vet a holler). Janene

this is one of the reasons I have some very large and long needles on hand,as I found 1 down and bloated ,she could not get up, so she got stuck with a needle, had to do it 3 times as it would clog, put a piece of plastic pipe in her mouth and ran a tub down it while she was on her side and had stuff run out the tube, got her down enough that we could get her to her feet and drenched her with thera bloat and baking soda, vet had me give her Oxytet because of the sticking but she recovered just fine, it is scary to find 1 bloated, and fast thinking on your part,job well done, and I would pick up any stings or netting as they can eat it right along with the hay Suzanne

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.
