Well, she certainly is skinnier than the others. Could be she is just a poorer doer, or that she is going through a growth spurt. It also could be that she needs another dose of dewormer.

If you have not wormed since Oct 09 it way past time to worm again. All calves do not grow the same but worms also effect some worse than others.
