My Jersey Dorsey is due to freshen around the first of April. It will be her seventh calf. The fellow who sold her to me raised her from a calf and said that she had had milk fever 3 of the 6 times she had calved for him. She never went down, just staggered some for a day or so. He never gave her anything medical to help her and she obviously got over it. As she is older now, I don't mind treating her with medications if they will help, but what do I need to have on hand? Is there anything much that I can do to help her before hand? Her previous history put the odds are 50/50 for milk fever, but so far I haven't been real lucky with my cattle births so I'm figuring more like 100% chance that something will go wrong.
