What great pictures! What kind of camera do you have? I'm taking mine with me every time I check my cows from now on! :D

we've had several different presentations with calving and it's just awlful anywhich way it happens. we had a heifer with one foot and head no progress called the vet on that one. we've had'em backwards and each and everytime is a learning experience. I did buy my husband a calf puller for fathers day one year.

Hi milkmaid

Can I use one of your pictures for an article in the Georgia Cattlemen's magazine?

Oh oh, Milkmaid could be famous, does she need to get a bigger hat? :lol2: :lol2: .

Dr. Lee, you may have better luck getting a response from her by sending her a "private message", if you haven't already. This is a pretty old posting that never moves from the top..... She's posted some great and very helpful stuff that is now a permanent fixture on CT.

I know cows aren't goats, and goats aren't cows. But they are similar 4-leggeds when it comes to birthing. Years ago, I friend of mine published in MEMO, the Nat'l Pygmy Goat Assoc. magazine, a great article, fully illustrated, showing just about every possible presentation you might find in a delivery -- how to tell front feet from back feet, multiple birth presentations, etc., and how to manuever that baby around to deliver it. I'm trying to get permission to get that and post it here. We are close to good cattle vets -- not everyone is, or can afford to call out the vet with a malpresentation. It will probably be in PDF format, so I may need some assistance figuring out how to download it, once I get it.

It's fascinating to see this pictures and hear your stories. You're getting prepared better when it finally will happen. At the moment I don't have a farm, so... I hope I can learn fast as soon as I start out. But I think this thread will be helpful later then, although I will also have to ask some experiences guys in real life about it.

Might mention that if you pull a calf backwards, always pull the tail down between the back legs, to keep the tail head from hanging on the pelvic bones and breaking the tail hear or even the extreme back part of the back it's self.

I don't see any images or pics of calves being born. Only a place to add an image. What gives?
