That was my thought. Especially at the mention of a backhoe. Thought it stirred it up.

Did you cut him open and look for a cause of death? Milkmaid had a thread about doing an autopsy and what to look for awhile back. I'd sure like to know what happened to him.

I stated earlier that we had a brain stem sample taken and should get a result in about a week. The backhoe is just the way we bury dead animals, I've found it to be a tad bit easier than a shovel.

It's my neighbors, it's usually available most anytime. He's a good friend, pretty handy to have it close by.

Based on the sudden death, bloated look and discharge
Could be any number of clostridial diseases

Do you cut the animal open and look for hardware when you do a brain stem sample? I found a piece of cardboard in a dead calfs throat before. Unexpected deaths need to be figured out.

Gotcha . . . . . . .I have been spreading out some left over piles of dirt from when the timber was cut on my place several years ago. They are just hedge rows of dirt where the brush was piled up.
