The usual bloody stool problems are coccidosis and such things, but it is usually diarrhea, not something they have to strain to produce.

I could be very wrong, but I'd be interested in knowing what she is being fed. Cattle don't normally strain to poop and perhaps a feed adjustment to unconstipate her might be all she needs.

How far along is she?

She is on livestock pellets ( Livestock 12 , hay and pasture) Found out it was a bad case of worms from my vet. Treated her and all is well.. Thanks for your ideas though...
