PHA calf video

(1/27) > >>

DL:
Frostback asked for a noncontroversial name the breed but I don't have a picture here (I'll try later, honest!) - so instead I posted a video of a C-section of a PHA calf on youtube -

If you have not had the unpleasant experience of having a PHA calf this likely will give you pause. The cow was euthanized because of peritonitis. It is in 2 parts

I see where JHM is eating his words. It takes a big man to do that. Sorry his wife had a TH calf.

Thanks!

actually knabe,  Frostback wanted name the breed but I don't have any pictures here so I gave you this instead!

There are cases where the cow lives after a PHA calf, both hard pull and C-section. There are also cases where the cow rebreeds. There are also cases where the cow has to be shot because even after a C-section they cannot get the calf out.
