2 day old calf curling nose

Postby MRRherefords » Wed Mar 08, 2017 8:12 am

I have a two day old bull calf that curls his nose constantly. I've seen this in newborns but not any more than a few hours. He does it mostly when he breathes, but is not struggling to breath or heaving at all. Has anyone seen this before? Is this something to worry about or am I just being a worry wart?

I think the latter.

I've seen it nothings wrong with them as far as I know they get over it.
