We have a commercial cow that has started limping over the past 3 days. She is close to calving but has not done so yet. Got her in the chute this morning and got some milk out of her. How soon to calving will cows start lactating? I don't know if she has had trouble maybe already trying to calve or something might have caused her to pinch a nerve as the calf is getting closer to come. Sometimes she will have her tail up as she moves around. Any suggestions or previous experiences like this. Called the vet and am waiting for a reply.
