Black leg can kill quickly and without much warning. See if skin feels crinkly sounding,feeling shortly after death. It doesn't take but 6 to 12 hrs after first obvious symptons for blackleg to finish them off. Here in south Alabama you can take a dead calf to the state lab and they will do a autopsy for free.
