The neighbour has a angus calf who’s mother died birthing a twin. It is unclear how much colostrum he got. He has joint ill. He has had antibiotics and steroids and is now 6 weeks old. I have been giving them Donna milk because I personally think its better for him than powdered and I have excess. K was telling me this morning that Major was a bit sore and reluctant to move last night. He has gone from three bad joints to just one. So he is improving. K’s daughter is the one doing the hard yards with this calf and she is very bonded to him. K is worried for her if the calf has to be put down. So to those who use alternative medicine, do you have any suggestions that we could use to improve the outcome for this calf.
I have cured a few joint infections that have been pretty well established, to the point of blowout abscesses (which I lanced and drained) with nuflor every four days, for four consecutive doses. Per our vet. Really saved those two calves from getting a bullet. So that's the route I would go if he's still got swelling
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.
