As Ed wrote about it, Dabba had her baby yesterday, and gave me a scare. When I went out to get the cows for milking, I noticed a red calf with 2 of our “Momma” cows standing just outside the free stall. I knew then that Dabba was a new mom…then I saw her out at the very end of the pasture and could see that she had prolapsed. She actually tried to get up-righted, but couldn’t and I knew that was for the best at that point.
Went and got Ed to see what he could do for her. He has done the procedure before and with great results for the most part. So I milked while he was performing his magic on Dabba, with great results.
Snapped the photo of ‘Trish’, the new babe when I walked back by her. Big long legged calf that has been easy to feed!
