Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your concerns today.

Has the cow been down for a full 3 days? Can you tell if she has moved/rolled over at all?

If I read your comments correctly, you never found the calf, right? Have you checked to make sure the calf is not in the birth canal?

I will monitor this post until about 5pm cst today for your reply.

Thank you.
