leg issues
« on: October 24, 2010, 11:21:23 AM »
I just had a heifer born, she came out breeched and cant stand on her hind feet, they wont support her they where bent back in the womb , her legs are good and she can feel, I know this usually works itself out with time, but is there anything I can do to help her? Shes eating like crazy and can stad and walk if I help her. I have her in some splint boots aswell.

we've  had to help backwards calves get around for a couple of days before...  sometimes it just takes awhile for them to get going...  Especially if the calf has some BW to it..

Keep working with her several times a day. The more that she can stand the more it will strengthen her muscles and increase her ability to stand alone.
