Vaginal vault prolapse occurs when the upper portion of the vagina loses its normal shape and sags or drops down into the vaginal canal.

We were happy that this girl has calved and have no daughters left from her. However this Saturday saw another cow with the same problem. Were really surprised, but later remembered that she's sired by the 1st cow's son. Used him for one season and now have 5 his daughters in the herd.
This time this cow is due on 4th of April. She's a pretty young cow, only 5 years old in march, carrying her 4th calf. Very good girl and have two her daughters in the herd.
Really don't like how she looks. The "ball" doesn't come in once she stands up. Needs to push her rear to face up the hill for it to come inside. It looks abit more loose that the 1st cow's. She's already preparing to calve but ligaments are still not getting any smoother. Again can't sleep calmly. :/ She'll be culled in the autumn too.

The second girl has calved two days ago. Had 104lbs bull calf, 277days gestation. It'll be very hard to cull her. She's such a sweet girl.

That's a pretty big calf. It is always hard to cull your favorites, I had to do it just a week ago. However, you have to keep the best animals in your herd, and cows with prolapses have a hard time staying in our herd. Glad to hear you got a calf out of her.

One of my cows has just been developing a prolapse as well.. there hasn't been a single trace of it through her entire maternal family, which makes it a bit of a surprise... She's got about a week to go still too.

She probably got that from the sire. Our both cows got that from the sire. If only she left one week she should be fine. Our first cow had left one month until calving and the 2nd girl ~two weeks.

That's the first prolapses in the herd for us. Not a nicest thing. Always thought what gonna find when went to check the herd. It won't be hard to cull the 1st cow. She looks the best from the herd, but calves are average, so it'll be for the best. However, the 2nd girl is a small plain looking cow with a tiny udder, but does her job well. Also she has calved at 15 months age so has quite a special story. Have two her daughters. One is due in april with 2nd calf, another is due in august-september with her 1st calf. Both very friendly girls. 1st calver did a great job raising her 1st calf-heifer and that one is a real sweety too. Well atleast her line won't disapear so easily.

I can't speak much for the sire, but his daughters have never before had a problem.. Kama is 5 years old, and really big and floppy this year, but hasn't really bagged up yet.. I'm wondering if she's going to have twins (Her full sister did this year)

We've a dam of the first cow, which is 14 years old and no such problems. The second cow got that from the 1st one's son.
You never know with twins. There was time when I thought that cow might have twins and she had, but for example, last year one pretty slim cow had twins, ~70lbs each calf. Last weekend one cow calved which had a huge belly, but only one normal size calf. You never know.

Nope, my twin prediction success rate is terribly low!
I had one BIIIG cow have twin 110 lb bull calves.. one was breech and didn't make it though.. she wasn't particularly round either

We've guessed a couple twins, but had surprises too. All were less than 90lbs.
