What sucks is convincing the guilty bovine that you’re only trying to help when dislodging the two :lol2:

No she some how got out. She was soaking wet from head to toe and was cut up pretty bad. My neighbor saw the whole thing happen and called me and said that the cow was stuck in the feeder and was in the pond. By the time I got there she had got out her self. It happen in the dead of winter.

Yes it could have the cow looked like she had been through a war she was wore out layed around the rest of the day by herself and moved pretty slow for a few days.

We had a first calf heifer that calves early get in one this spring and couldn’t get out. We think she was in it at least a day. Couldn’t turn around. We used the bale arms to lift the entry side up so she could get out. She got partially back in a week later. Lowered the top bar a bunch and it stopped. She was dmsller due to calving early. She has grown a bunch this summer. So hoping no more issues.

Had a heifer turn a bale ring over, stuck in it last winter , cold as the devil, don't think she would have survived another day . Just one of those feelings that I went out there that day.
