In the future if you can tie the cow up or put it in a chute and cast her with a rope, cinch her tight - she should stand better for the calf. You can also hobble her legs if she wants to kick.

I fought with a heifer for a few weeks one time, standing there as the calf drank and kicking her every time she tried to kick the calf. Was a long 3 weeks, but once I let her lose she took to that calf the rest of the summer. Not sure if she would have if I released her sooner, wasnt sure she was taking to it, as everytime I turned my back she'd try and kick it if she wasn't cast.
