BAD start to my day, so I don't look forward to the rest of it! First, before daylight when getting the cows herded in to milk, I find #11, a fresh cow down from I believe is milk fever (calcium drop). So I give her 2 bottles of treatment & go on to milking & will check on her later. Then I have a cow that I seen noodle the gate over where they come into the parlor. She then pushed her way BEHIND all the metal bars that they normally are in front of & against while milking. These bars are supported by metal beams set in concrete, so she could squeeze herself through, but ended up hip-locked behind an upright column. I finally got her hip past, but the next column was tight enough she couldn't get past. So I had to get wrenches & unbolt the crossbars from the column to get her out. After that I had a never milked new fresh heifer to milk, but luckily not too much problem with her. My head is pounding from the stress.
Gotta check on the down cow, and then head out for supplies in remodeling the one shop wall. The meds I gave her can take several hours to take hold, so just have to give it time. I have to milk again tonight, and Josh is off tomorrow, so if things don't settle down, it's gonna be a rough couple days.
