Blood Type Question

Postby briandrade97 » Tue May 22, 2018 3:59 pm

Going to sound dumb, but do baby calves have the same blood type as their mom? How can i figure out the blood type of my new calf.

Thanks in advance.

Not in humans are the child's blood type always the same as mom. Blood types relate to the antigen/antibodies on the erthrocyte. Why do you need the blood type of the calf? You doing a transfusion? It might be expensive to determine in bovines.
