18 on the first day must be some sort of a record.
If they are only calved a max of 24 Hours would you not be a little premature thinking they held cleanings already and you have an issue?
We always seem to start with a big burst. A bit of Jersey still in the herd hence the extra mag.with tight calving we have to react fast or we would have some serious f##k ups .speaking from past experiences. Paddy mc is due in the yard Saturday morning to go through things anyway

Got a text from our vet that effydral is being discontinued. Great product for weak calves. I ordered some today

Just tipped over the half way mark. Twas a frantic few weeks. Lost one as was still born. So far all healthy hope to get a few away this weekend. Night off tonight. Think it calls for a bottle.

Our due date was 7th Feb. They started a bit early. 97 calved to date.

Silage is high in potassium so cows are getting magnesium chloride pre calving and any older cows or anything that looks like it needs it (fat or thin) gets a calcium bolus just after calving. Had just 1 case of fever so far. Se got 2 bottles under the skin, 2 boluses and a stomach pump over the space of 12hrs.....she was out grazing yesterday so is back to herself.

Nothing worse than high Potassium silage for giving issues.
