We have been trying to get a cow that lost her baby to take an orphan calf. Things we have tried are: skinning her dead calf and placing hide on orphan and the O No More from the vet. If anyone else has anything they have tried and succeeded I would appreciate advice. The cow is 4 years old, we just bought her along with 4 others and she is the SECOND to lose her calf. The previous owners definently feed these girls up and made them babies grow fast because the calf she lost was over 100 pounds and was hung up because when we found them the head was swelled and it had bruising under the hide. I am sure worried about the rest of them, hope they don't lose theirs too.
