I have a cow with a very large, hard lump that is growing on the side of her neck behind her right ear. She has a month old calf and I am worried that she may have something terrible and won't be able to care for her calf. The lump is about 8 inches wide by 3 inches high. There is no sign of any wound or anything like that on the lump. I have called the vet but she can't come 'til Thurs.
The cow is about 8 yrs. old and healthy other than the huge lump. The cattle are on dryland pasture at this time, soon to be fed hay.
We live in South Western Oregon.
