Excellent resource, much more user friendly than our 'old' Stockman's Handbook! ;-)

This is a great site for anyone. Everyone should know that if you see sores in your cow's (or sheep, pigs, goats) mouth like those seen in the BVD picture WASH YOUR HANDS, don't touch any other animals and call your vet. There are several other very scary diseases that look like this.

It's amazing how some people abuse their animals. Some of these shown need to be put out of their misery.

Without any noting of what the pictures are showing it's certainly easy to conclude that some of the animals shown appear to have been abused, but the thing is, bad things happen even with the best care, and even though it looks like the animals are abused they're most likely not. Can't ever judge a book by its cover. :)

All of the pictures posted appear to be from natural causes. Not really any signs of neglect or abuse.

they can, if you are having this issue it would be good to check with your nutricionist and your Vet what kind of minerals are you using with them.
higher sodium might cause edema too.
