18 on the first day must be some sort of a record.
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 anyway18 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?
Nothing worse than high Potassium silage for giving issues.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.
