Glad to hear Elsie is doing good. Or is it Bossie? Anyway, hope her and the calf get along. She might need a day or so of rest.


I think I'll go with a combo name...."Belsie"! :D

Daniel, Sorry I missed the thread. I hate to hear of the troubles you have had this weekend, I hope and PRAY thing continue to get better for you and Ole-#155. It's tough to loose 2 pieces of your future production herd, hopefully #155 will continue to improve and allow the calf to nurse her.

Just now read this thread. That's a remarkable recovery for Belsie! Worked on Dairy farms through high school and part of college but never saw a prolapse...don't really care to either! Raising some beef cattle now...could never get past that idea of milking twice a day. Sure glad you do it though as I LOVE MILK!

Regularly monthly vet check is tomorrow, so he can check her over good & take the stitches out. I usually take them out, but he'll be up close & personal anyway. Like I think I've said, I've put 2 prolapses back in myself, but years ago. It takes a LOT out of you pushing that uterus back inside while she's heaving it to push it back out. The vet gives them a spinal block to stop the contractions. I think this saga will end on a good note. She was nursing the calf when I went to milk this morning! :-)

After all my other cows were in headlocks for the vet check following morning milking, I brought "Ol Belsie" into the parlor. She did fine, other than a bit slow which is a given what with all she's been through. She was licking the calf when I went to get her out. She milked out good and no sign of mastitis yet. Let her lock up to remove the stitches. I let her loose from the headlocks while leaving the rest locked so she could safely walk back to the calf & sawdust pack. She is doing GREAT! Just finished vet check. Gonna be a hot day here! Got the sprinklers on the cows.

This cow is a success story! :dancingbanana:

Glad to hear Belsie is doing well and letting the calf nurse. Hopefully things will be back to normal soon.
