....Thoughtlessly in a hurry on my part listen to Burrhead. He is right. Wont be long we'll be useing a product called
"Screw Worm Aerosol-L". In use it will be blue in color. During fly season we use this on the tattoos, tags, and hind ends over one or two or both orfices dependent on the six.
Happy Days
Got to get out to the grind. No grain for morning?

I'm right there with you, Fern. We are just getting feed ground for tonight's feeding. Been such a busy day, good food, nice weather and hopes of rain coming in. Mom and Dad came out and helped a bit and the kids sure enjoyed Grandma and Grandpa's company. Nothing better than a nice spring day. Thanks for the tip on the spray. I'll pick some up next time I go to Fleet Farm or something. And thanks for the pictures! They are helpful. I pulled a calf last year but the cow was lying down on the ground and I just braced my feet on her rump. Never thought I'd get that calf out but I stayed with the contractions. I'm not sure which was harder, pulling that calf or having my own kids. All turned out well and hopefully this year will be even better since all the cows have had a calf last year. I saw where you were feeling kind of odd the other day so I hope you are taking care of yourself and feeling better. Thanks again.

Just remember to pull towards the cows feet whether she's up or down. If calf should seem to become stuck give quarter turn chest to ground to turn hips, calf will exit easier.
Also, should need to turn calf over, dificult as it mat seem, roll calf on its feet and belly. By no means roll the calf over on its back. This may entangle an intestine and stop bowels. Surgury is expensive and must be timely.
Enjoy the animals. I like the challnges.
