    How far from the other animals should I keep the calf??? I will move her off the grass but she will be closer to the other animals and to Ellie. The wind blows from all directions. They will not be able to touch noses.

    Is this the only calf??? If so as long as they can not touch is great. A cow has built up immunities to many things that a bottle calf can not handle.
