    Sounds like a good idea. You go out and pitch the manure out of my barn while I see what I can find about it on the net.

    Could you give me the symptoms of bloat? I have a steer about 150 #'s that has alot of foamy saliva, is that it? if so what do you do about it?

    thanks,

    Amy

    In a nut shell cattle bloat is when a cattle CAN NOT burp or fart. Foamy stuff builds up at the top of the first stomach and will not allow these activities.

    Soooooooooo foam, saliva,150# calf is this while it is sucking that is part of the nursing process which actually aids them
