Heifer leaking urine

 Heifer leaking urine


I’m looking at my heifers today, and one of them has a constant drip drip drip of clear urine and down her tail. She looks comfortable otherwise, healthy, eating well. I don’t have easy access to our vet. Just noticed this today. Suggestions? Thanks!

If it is clear could it be mucus from a heat?

I’m hoping it’s this but it looks awefully watery and not goopy...but I’m new to this so we’ll see.

Agree, mucus/heat would be my first thought. How old is she? And is she exposed to a bull? Getting hunched by other heifers/steers - whatever your current situation? Tail slightly out?

just watched some youtube videos...yep, it's heat. She's right at a year old. Y'all can move this to the beginner boards now :)
