My one Milking Devon heifer to carry a calf out of last year's troubles gave birth to a bouncing 32 pound bull calf this a.m. She was not due until the first of June, or at least that is what the vet assured me during her palpation. I called the vet a half hour ago and he told me to feed it 4 to 6 times a day a total of 10% of the calf's body weight, or 3.2 pounds per day. The bitsy took a pint of colostrum straight off, but he still can't get to his feet. The vet said to not get my hopes up about the calf's survival. Now to figure out how to hold the coming three year old heifer for milking. I thought that I had nearly 6 weeks to play around with her and gentle her a bit, but now it needs done yesterday.
