I lost a calf this morning. The cow had its last<br>calf 9 months and 12 days ago, does this seem a<br>little soon. The calf's hair did not seem to totally developed yet. <p>Todd

Sorry to hear that. Had the teeth (lower incisors) penetrated the gums yet? If not, definitely premature. If you have a few of these, look at getting serology done and a PM on the calf, membranes and preferably a caruncle. It could be that the cow was just bumped, or run down from lactation while heavily pregnant....unfortunately there are lots of reasons. And yes, a cow can get pregnant 10 days post calving. <br>Vicki<br>: I lost a calf this morning. The cow had its last<br>: calf 9 months and 12 days ago, does this seem a<br>: little soon.
