I had a yearling heifer come up lame yesterday evening. She was found laying down in the wood line and did not come to feed like the other. So I got her on her feet and her right front leg was lame. She would put very little pressure on it. At first I thought maybe she stepped in a hole. So I moved her to the barn and inspected for snake bites , hoof rot and swelling. None of which showed. I picked up her leg and all joints seemed to work proper, but she had no appetite. Got up this morning and she was laid up against the gate dead as can be. I have no ideas what could have caused this other than a severe shoulder wound that may have caused fluid in the lungs killing her.
