Are you going to let the calf nurse on her? Will you use her milk for your consumption? Once they calf, its time to milk her or let the calf feed onher, depending on what your plans are.

As long as she wasn't dry treated at the end of her previous lactation with antibiotics you can start drinking the milk anytime...but you probably don't want to drink colostrum!! eww. The milk should be normal in 3 days or so.
