Hi, Mark, that was a real bummer, but glad everything turned out OK. Have had a couple instances, here, for different reasons, where a cow could not stand. used some three by twelve fir planks sixteen feet long to make a tripod over the animal. made a sling out of a big canvase bag, nylon rope and spreaders over the cows back, and a chain fall to lift, at least twice a day, to keep circulation going. It works! This was all before a tractor with a loader big enough to do the job, now, have not had to do that!
Sure good to see the barn comming along so well, that is going to be one nice building!!!
Have yourself a gooder, R.E.L.
