Milk fever is caused by low blood calcium levels after a cow has calved. Milk and colostrum production drains the blood of calcium, and some cows are unable to replace the calcium quickly enough. Vet Dave injected a calcium solution into the cow to replenish the calcium she needs. She will not be milked for the next 24 hours, and then gradually increase her milking for the next 2-3 days.
We work closely with our veterinarians to keep our cows healthy and comfortable. Our commitment to providing high-quality milk begins with taking good care of our cows.
