    Norma has developed lots of drool the last couple of days

    normally she would lick her salt block after she finished the scoop of feed, but now she doesn't do that

    also sounds "funny" eating her grain because of all the drool

    any suggestions

    she acts like she "feels" fine

    Sounds like to me she may have something stuck in her throat. Better have the vet take a look.

    My Jersey drooled all the time after she figured out that she was feed after milking. When I went to tie her there would be a five foot stream of drool literally floating in the wind behind us. Usually she would smear it all over me. I wouldn't be too concerned unless she has difficulty breathing or if she has something stuck in throat.
