Glad to hear. After I wrote this I realized maybe I should have gone to the salebarn as well :lol: The entire RH negative thing sure scared me. We're very lucky there is a remedy for it. Years ago, some weren't as fortunate. Merry Christmas to you, Susans. Hope the calf thrives no matter what the problem is.

Most of the time but not always. A few years ago I had a calf that started grinding his teeth when he was just a couple days old. Had no idea what was wrong, vet couldn't figure it out either & he continued to thrive but a month or so later lost the tips of his ears & majority of his tail. In retrospect, it dawned on my he was grinding his teeth in pain from frostbite. Named him Stumpy & yes, got docked at the sale barn but was one of the largest steers.
