We are so frustrated. We noticed crows out back circling an area of our property. DH went to investigate today and found what appears to be a full term bull calf tan with white face disembowelled by the birds. We were noticing that our momma cow that is actually due last of all our mommas was bagging (not due until 5/24/05 and is always late) She is still nursing casually her 11 month old who didn't seem to be too vigorous for a few days and momma's bag was definitely full - not as much as her usual milker bag when she is due but still getting larger. The last 2 pregnancies she has had such a huge bag it was hard for her to walk. Well she doesn't look as pregnant tonight. She is the one all the males are trying to jump. I know that they try when they are getting close, I know they try after but I am just heart broken thinking that she lost one. I was commenting yesterday that she is starting to look close (within 2 weeks - close)-we had better watch her - her tail is starting to move to the side but not disappearing into the pelvic area. I cannot believe that she had it and lost it. I am just heartbroken. I feel so guilty - we usually know if they pass gas or scratch their backs. None of our animals should be due before 4/17 and Reba was 5/25. We do have a neighbor with one heifer that was pregnant - due around the time ours are. Maybe it was from them and it got dragged by the coydogs. They have lost every calf that this poor thing has had and a bull to lightening. All the rest of the pregos are looking very pregnant, comfortable and not being chased. She went into heat on 8/12/04 and is usually 292 days. Oh well just looking for input - not really anything we can do now. The other thing that is bugging me is that their is no afterbirth or anything coming out of any of them.
