Looking for other producers who have females who have been injured<br>and suffer from a dropped hip. Want to know what treatments were<br>used to make cow more comfortabe and what type of longevity did they have<br>afterwards and what kind of problems can I expect for next years calving of <br>that female. I was unfortuate enough to have a really nice female injured<br>after a riding incident when we syncronized a large group for AI, we<br>used cidrs and the heats were very intense, and this very large female suffered <br>from a dropped hip, Beaut was used to treat the inflamation for the first two<br>weeks and she is isolated with the calf and has already been bred back.<p>Just interested in finding out what type of life this female can expect to have <br>befor it is time to cull her from the herd.

I had two longhorns who suffered from dropped hip..neither one was ever sore or impaired in any way. The first one was injured when breeding to a Limousin before I bought her. She had several more calves, both purebred and commercial before i sold her. She is well up in her teens and still calving regularly.<br>: Looking for other producers who have females who have been injured<br>: and suffer from a dropped hip.

Hi Michelle,<br>Bad News!! I had a ten year old cow of many crosses (good ciw) that got hurt by a bull. One of the bull calves were bothering him, so he came off the cow hard & broke her hip down. She had problems walking & it never got any better. She then developed arthritis so bad she couldn't move in the winter when the ground was frozen. I had to carry feed to her & protect her so she could eat it, as the other cows pushed her around. (She had always been "boss cow".) She calved with no problem, raised a good calf, but got knocked down several times during breeding. We put her down as we could not watch her suffer any longer. If she has pain & has trouble walking, I would butcher her as soon as she weans the calf as she won't bring anything at the auction. Soooo Sorry for you but more for her.<br>Good luck with your cow as I know how hard it is to make that kind of decision, especially if she is a pet like Augusta was.

I'm from a dairy farm, but we have had the same problem a few times. <br>One cow with a dropped hip has had several calves since then, and the other one is a heifer. The heifer was a 4-H animal, and made it to the show before the dropped hip was noticed. Neither animal has had any problems being bred by AI, or seems to be in any pain. <br>Don't count her out yet, she may come around. <p><p>: I had two longhorns who suffered from dropped hip..neither one was ever sore or impaired in any way.
