Lost Calf

I have a cow that lost its calf - and has not been milked or had another calf on it for over a week. How much time is left to try a strange calf on this cow before she drys up from not being suckeled or milked?

You'veprobably missed the window of opportunity. The cow should be starting to dry off. It can't hurt to try grafting a calf on her, but know up front you may have to take over and bottle feed the calf. If she takes it, she may start producing enough milk again. Hard to tell, kind of depends on the cow.
