Message Title: Oxytocin for Momma

We have had very few cows, even heifers, not take the calves after they were pulled. If the pulling is quick and the momma is not hurt it has not been a problem. This year we watched on camera a calf follow his mom around for an hour (In the handling facility after he was pulled) before he got a drink. After 4 hours he was still not licked off but had managed to eat! They are all different.
