Yesterday my heifer (due in Aug.) got to a pine tree. I saw her right away and she had only a nibble of of few leaves and maybe part of one small branch. I was grateful that Dun addressed that if the cow is well fed then limited pine tree ingestion shouldn't cause a problem. My gal gets about 30 # of hay a day plus grain in the evening, so I think she'll be okay. I also gave her free feed baking soda and goat minerals last night. She always has loose mineral salt available, but thinks the goat mineral combo is a treat. Bottom line question if she is going to abort, would it have happened by now or is it a few days out? Lord willing, we are in the clear.

But, was it "pinus ponderosa"? That's the one that causes problems.

Yes, it was. Good ol' Ponderosa Pine is one of the 3 major pines in my neck of the woods. I just checked the yard to see if I could see a calf fetus....nothing yet. I hope that means everything will be okay.
