Our cow gave birth to her first calf last night and it doesn't look like the afterbirth has been delivered. What looks like the remains of the cord is still hanging. Will she expel it eventually or should I try to pull it out? I don't want to hurt her but I don't want her to get an infection either. This is her first calf and we have a real problem on our hands because our horse decided to keep her away from the calf and he was seperated from her for at least 9 hours after he was born. Even though we penned the horse up this morning I'm worried about the calf now since he hadn't yet had his first suck from Mama when I left for work this morning. I'm anxious to get home and check on him but now I'm worried about both of them.
