Last Sunday I lost this big brangus cow. I've had her for years and she was a very good cow. She was apparently in labor and prolapsed. I found her in the woods in this shape. I saw her the evening before with no issues.I thought she may have dropped her calf but she was very bloated looking. Looked like afterbirth by her back but I saw no signs of a calf and since her belly was so big I concluded she must not have had it before she died. Fast forward to this morning, I found this heifer calf standing by fence line about 100 yards from any cow. Looked thin like it hadn't nursed, hair dirty, so I slowly pushed it too cows to find mama. None were interested and none looked to have just calved. These are all older cows and all have had calves here with no issues. A few walked up and sniffed but none were very interested. Calf never bellowed, was slightly weak but walked fine and actually kept walking down fence line another 100 yards away from cows. We gave 3 quarts of colostrum and she took to bottle fine. I'm thinking this has to be the brangus cows calf. Looks like a calf she would have with plenty ear. Is 5 or 6 days possible for this calf to survive on its own? If so, what is her chance of survival?
