We just had a cow lose her calf at birth on Friday and we took the baby right away and disposed of it. She is still looking for her baby and she thinks the baby in the pasture next to her is hers. She constantly looks over the fence mooing to it all day. She does occasionally goes and joins the herd and when she does she checks all the babies then goes back to the calf next door. Do you let the cow stay with the baby so she realizes it's dead or do you take it right away? Do you think they relized their calf is dead? I have had some others who have lost their calves and they go back ot where they lost there calf but she is really stressed about this. Just wanted to know what everone else does in this situation. Thank you!!
