We have a calf about 45 days old, we took it the vet. The vet said the calf had an infection in all the joint areas. Got the infection from the mother before it was born. My question is: Is the mother a carrier and will future calfs she has have the infection too?

Hm, is it joint ill? To my knowledge, the mother doesnt pass that on. Its something the calf gets immediatly after being born, but I could be wrong. Did the vet prescribe anitbiotics? We had a calf with joint ill and it pulled thru just fine. We thought she was a goner tho for ahwile. So allow plenty of time to heal. Ours was born in a feedlot and never got colustrom from its mother, thus lowering her immunities.
