The educational farm just called me, to ask me to spare some time sitting with this rescued cow. The cow is six years old, and this is her first calf. The farm workers have no idea why she wasn't bred earlier. They took the cow in with the whole herd three months ago, and she had already been bred. She has had contractions for a few days now, with some discharge. The calf is still moving inside her, so hasn't died yet. This cow also developed an inflammation in her utter overnight....one of her teats is inflammed. The farm won't put her down, but wants to wait a while longer to see what happens with her. Is there any advice to pass on to these folks who are trying to keep the animal alive? I know it is difficult to pass on advice, especially seeing as no one has really diagnosed what is exactly wrong with her hoofs....except that they are quite overgrown.
