Been awhie since ive posted asking for thoughts, but i have a young cow that calved her second calf this week and she had no milk. Heres a little history on this cow, last year i had to pull her calf and it was dead once i found her and got it pulled. A friend had a orphan calf that we grafted onto her and she raised if fine. She took the calf with very little work at all and had plenty of milk. Since she did well with that calf i decided to give her another try, and now i got a calf im having to bottle feed. My question is what could possibly cause her to not have milk? I could be wrong but i dont think it’s nutritional because she seems to be in good body condition. Currently im strip grazing my cattle on fescue based pasture, feeding a little hay, and keep free choice minerals out. I know i could give her a shot of oxytin(spelling) to see if shell come to her milk, but ive been told it could causs her to throw her uterus, so im reluctant to do that. Shes most definitely on my cull list at this point, but im just curious at what could cause this. Has anyone else experienced this in the past? Any suggestions on what i could possibly do besides the shot to see if her milk will come?
