Ratia Ranch Christmas calendar. Day 19. This is what it sounds in the summer when the cows want to change the pasture 😁 Now it is the same sound volume (or worse) for we weaned the calves and the first days are always the hardest because of the new situation . But it has to be done to prevent too early pregnancies and to give cows proper time to rest before next calves.
❌❌❌❌❌ CASCADE OF PUS🤤🤤🤤 ABSOLUTELY NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!!! BUT A MUST FOR ABSCESS LOVERS... A 6 year old Friesian cow presented with a history of weight loss over a couple of months, brisket & sub-mandibular oedema, hugely distended jugular veins & respiratory distress. As the symptoms suggested catastrophic respiratory/ cardiac pathology, with a hopeless prognosis, the cow was euthanased. Examination of the thorax, on a 'partial ' post mortem, revealed a huge abscess, containing about a gallon of pus on the right cranial lobe. Strong as an ox 🤤
