I HAVE A 2 1/2 YR OLD BRAUNVIEH THAT HAS JUST HAD HER FIRST CALF. LOST CALF THREE DAYS LATER DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS SICK OR COYOTES GOT IT. BUT I NEED TO KNOW HER TEATS ARE FAT AND I HAVE NO CALF TO PUT ON HER, WHAT TO DO? IS THERE SOMETHING TO GET THAT WILL DRY HER MILK UP OR DO I LET NATURE RUN ITS COURSE? I AM NEW AT THIS. SHE HAD NO PROBLEM WITH BIRTH.

If you are going to keep her just let her dry up . but if she lost her calf for any reason she needs to grow wheels..

Ask your vet. There is a shot (the name is on the tip of my tongue but I can't remember the name) you can give her that will help her dry up.

We lost a calf this winter and asked the vet about a shot to dry the cow up. He said the shot he could give us was a massive dose of steroids and wouldn't recommend it unless her udder was massive in size. We let her dry naturally with no problems.
