The calf is doing great, lots of energy and hungry. It's poop is the yellow/orange color and has some firmness to it. But it's butt has some of that colored poop mess on it, on to it's tail in that area as well. The cows have always licked the calves back there and kept them clean. I don't know if we're feeding it wrong or that mess is normal.

Sometimes with my goat kids the colostrum poop is so sticky it will get all over the legs and glue the tail down and makes a real mess. I wonder if it all has to do with the quality of the colostrum? Sounds like a normal thing to me. Just keep the calf washed as needed. That is what I do with my kids and it stops pretty quickly ( day o 2 ) as the colostrum lessens and the milk comes in.

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.
