The Cow was due to Calf about 9 days ago,and wee were keeping an eye on her, Decided to bring her in to the cow shed last night as she was just laying down all day in a verry difficult spot in the field.Decided to call the Vet and he came(a verry young lad)and a student Vet was with him ,a young girl that will be a good vet one day as she liked the job and was verry good at it.
They decided between them that it would be better to deliver the calf,and to help the cow they pulled it out in the end
with a special machine.
I will try and upload some more for you to see what happened.
