Message Title: Oxytocin for Momma

I have heard of giving Oxytocin to a cow that will not accept her calf. What would the recommended dose be per Cow lb ? Also how long does it take to kick in? Is it put in muscle or under skin? We had to pull a large calf last night, and that little guy is so active it is hard to feed him his colostrum. Need some suggestion for helping momma to take this calf. Also how long would you recommend leaving them together before letting her out?
