There are many reasons for sudden death of calves. Could have gotten a twisted gut, could have had an absess that burst, could have gotten over-eating disease. Part of raising cattle - some can be avoided by vaccinations. Maybe you should have had an autopsy - for future preventative tactics. Jeanne
