    Is this jersey cow close to calving?

    Wow! Thank you, once again. I’ll try not to interfere, no matter how strong the urge to solve every issue is with me. 😀 I am not milking her yet. I’m a little nervous to be honest.

    I appreciate the tip on pulling one leg at a time. The doorway reference was perfect. I appreciate all of your advice, actually! Many thanks! Susan

    Is this jersey cow close to calving?

    I hope you’re right! We do have facilities if she needs assistance. I sent a video to my vet a couple of weeks ago. (She had an emergency surgery and couldn’t make our appointment.) I gave her the full 360° tour of the heifer. She feels she may need assistance based on her size. Many thanks...

    Yes, just yesterday, her bag started to fill. About 1/3 fillled.

    Is this jersey cow close to calving?

    Here’s an “aerial” view of the “widette.” Fairly certain she’ll need assistance.

    I’m eagerly awaiting this girl’s calf’s arrival! I definitely plan to milk the jersey to supplement for the polled Hereford’s calf as she probably won’t have much milk being a heifer. Maybe they can share? One question— can I freeze fresh cow’s milk the same as colostrum?

    Underbite! Hilarious! Do you think mine will brindle with age? I’m thinking about keeping him as a herd sire and split off my heifers to a separate location. What do you think? I may need to wait and see how he grows off. Yours is cute as a button with those teefies showing!

    We have a baby! In these pics, HE is three days old. As tall as some of the 2-4 week calves. I’m in love. Momma is being excellent with her mothering. Many thanks for your advice and encouragement!

    Is this jersey cow close to calving?

    Funny you should mention that. I caught a week old calf eyeing her this afternoon. I told him I knew she looked delicious but he better keep his distance from her. She doesn’t have a lot of patience with the babies. I hope she’ll have patience with her own. We already have two milk bandits...

    I’m really glad she’s my cow as well!

    Is this jersey cow close to calving?

    Thank you for the wealth of information. I have a high risk heifer due to calve in less than a month. (high risk for pulling due to size— small for her 25 months) I may bottle feed her calf using extra milk from the jersey. I doubt the heifer will have much milk.

    One more thing… She missed the possible date for being bred by the brangus, so our polled Hereford bull is the sire.

    Is this jersey cow close to calving?

    After months of checking her every day, she has finally lost her mucous plug. So it appears we will have a calf within the next two weeks or less. This photo was taken yesterday, January 8.
