I had a set of twin heifer calves born Easter Sunday I seperated mother and calves from the rest of the herd for a few days to make sure the calves were feeding when everything looked good I let them back out Today when I went to check the herd I noticed one of the twin calves had scours she is still up and sucking I called the vet for some meds but he is out of town for a week What are my options? Thank you, Tom

Typically white scours is called "milk scours". A lot of good milk and usually clears up when the calf gets to eating a little more grass/hay. If you're graining the cow at all I would stop that for now.
