calf hates blower tips
« on: February 08, 2015, 09:38:51 PM »
Had a heifer go backwards on me. I can do anything to her besides blow on her. She use to enjoy being blown on and now ya can't touch her with the blower. Wondering if anyone knows any tips on what I can do. Tried all my tricks and can figure anything out. And even though it sounds like an amature question, ive tried about everything i can think of. And before I get any comments yes she has been worked on alot and it's not the first time using the blower on her

give her a really good check over, look for scars, cuts, rash, etc. I had a heifer get pissy about the blower and it was because she had an allergic reaction to ivomec and rashed up.

What happened during her last successful experience? They have great memories. 
Otherwise, check for warts, skin welts, any breaks to the skin, tingle voltage.  Or, is she wet and overly cold.
Is the problem with the entire body?
IF THE JOB WAS EASY, EVERYONE WOULD DO IT.

ya that's what confuses me. her skin seems fine. Weve had em have problems like that before. I cant remember anything that spooked her. The only thing we could think if something happened and spooked her during a snowstorm. she seems to be more jumpy in the pen now too.
