When your heifer quit eating the good bugs in her gut that help digest food started to die off. They will eventually build back up again and she will gain better. You can give her ProBi or a similar product to speed up this process.

You say her tounge is rough and has something black on it. Have you seen many tounges on cattle and know this is not like most? Cattle do have a very rough tounge, like sand paper. Also cattle with black hides and skin will have black sections or stripes on the top and or bottom of their tounges. Is what your are seeing different than this?
