    Mama cow can't get up

    Calved June 16, this year. Not really droopy, just not herself since yesterday. Before yesterday she was ok. Doesn't want to move around much. She's usually first at the feed trough. Still has an appetite though. I did a google and it looks like maybe low blood calcium(milk fever)even though...

    Mama cow can't get up

    Yesterday morning, checking on the herd, I found one of my most productive cows couldn't get up. She obviously was too weak in her hind legs. After coaxing her awhile she finally struggled to all four even though I could see she was having a hard time of it and had a small bit of trembling in...

    Mildew in hay a problem?

    That's kinda' what I thought. I'm gonna have to watch my hay farmer's a little closer in the future. Normally, in Texas, we don't deal with mildew in hay, just lots of dust. HAHAHA. Thanks very much!

    Mildew in hay a problem?

    Started feeding the new hay and after a few days noticed it had a lot of mildew smoking from it when tossed around. I've never had this problem with hay, ever, but we've had a lot of rain the last month or so. The hay has been stored in a barn with lots of ventilation. I've heard of moldy hay...

    Mildew in hay a problem?

    We've had a lot of rain here in N. Central Texas this Spring. I bought "coastal" hay recently from a guy who is supposed to know what he's doing so I bought it right out of the field right behind the baler. Got it home, started feeding it and after a few days noticed it had a lot of mildew...

    Bovine Health Question

    I live in Texas and we have what is called trade days all over the state. These are usually held once a month in small towns. Is it safe health-wise for me to take these calves to a market like trade days? Has anybody had any health problems with their calves after taking them to a trade days...

    Which vaccines to give by Intra-Muscular method?

    Which vaccines or should I give by Intra-Muscular method? Also, which drugs should be given by the subcutaneous method? I am trying to ween myself off of depending on my vet for things I can do for myself without causing a problem for my cattle. Please advise. Thanks.

    Cow ate hay netting

    Today she's eating hay and behaving normally but I'm still concerned because she still has the knot on the side of her face, just below the left eye. I'm thinking that it's a wad of twine that's caught between her cheek and her teeth. I've never stuck my fingers into a cows mouth because I don't...

    Cow ate hay netting

    Just discovered a cow with netting slightly protruding out of her mouth. She wouldn't let me approach her to grab it so I got her into the squeeze chute and it had disappeared. Then I noticed a large lump on her left cheek under her eye which I hadn't seen before. Could the twine be lodged a...

    Bull too young to produce a quality calf???

    My plans for this young 10 mo old Angus bull were to possibly breed him at 2 years old. However I just saw him attempting to breed a 3 yr old Angus cow in standing heat. Don't know if it will consummate in a pregnancy or not because of the difference in their height. Question is, if he did...

    Bull puberty

    I have two baby bulls aged 5 months. At what age can they get a female pregnant? They are black angus and are very healthy. I don't want to separate them from the rest of the herd until I have to, but I don't want them to breed accidentally. How should I manage this situation? Thanks!
