from what I can see in the pic, she doesn't have a filled out abdomen to be carrying a full term calf. if she has a small calf behind the hip, you may have a hard time feeling it. i would see if you can feel the uterus sitting on top of the hip bones to verify that no calf is in there.

Vet said that she had likely aborted prior to my estimated calving date (summer/fall) and what I saw the other day was another aborted fetus. He said he could do blood work or go further, but he recommended selling and forgetting about it. Likely Genetic? He didn't see a cause for concern with any other cows (viral).
