So this morning our Irish Dexter cow Rosie went into labor. I had to give her CMPK to prevent the milk fever she had last year. This involved roping her head, tying her to a fence post and shoving the paste down her throat. After this experience, she was not interested in being close to me so I watched her labor from afar. I was able to video it from across the pasture with a zoom lens.
At the end of this I realized that her calf was breech. I was concerned about it when I saw the feet but could not be sure at such a distance, but then the head did not appear and she was not making much progress. So I stopped the camera and ran and pulled the calf out. It had quite a bit of secretions and I could not find the bulb suction, but she gradually recovered.
And here is her sweet face.
I am thinking about calling her Independence (Indy for short) since she was born on a potentially historic day.
