7 month old calf

Post by Tomcolvin » Tue Sep 11, 2018 5:40 pm

My calves were separated from the mamas last week. One of them has moohed all now and day. This evening she has lost her voice and just has a whistle. Do I need to do anything for her or let her run her course. She is pitiful sounding as she use to have a deep voice. She has had no shots of any kind yet and is due her vaccinations and worming.

Someone always loses their voice in my lot. She'll get it back, don't worry.

Keep a close eye on her for signs of pneumonia.

if she coughs after the bawl I'd be more concerned....but during this Stressed period best to keep her checked...

Squeaky wheel get the grease, but also keep an eye out for any that look too depressed to bawl.
