    We finally got the calf yesterday, but we lost her mother

    She got the calf yesterday late afternoon and everything looked good.
    This morning (Sunday), when I checked on them, Clara was lying there on her side with all the guts outside
    . I had to put her down.
    But it looks like we can safe the boy. We named him Georgo after an italian child story of a boy who lost his parents

    Was a tough day

    Looks like he is doing ok
    We got some colostrum for the first two days from a Dairy Farm just 10 minutes from us. Today we changed to milk. Will send a pic sometime this week :)
     
  12. OSSI, I can't tell you how many calves I helped my dad raise due to some reason that the mother died or had to be put down. I have a feeling he will be just fine!

    Sorry for the loss of the cow, but at least you are able to save her baby. :hearts:

    The picture is not very good, from the mobile.
