Hey everyone !
My dad he is a Livestock hauler( which trust me he doesnt like to do, he loves the cows and feels horrible for having to drive them to their death)
Anyways, He had a cow, give birth on the trailer, and if a cow has a baby on the trailer, the trucker can keep it.
The mother cow passed away, so my dad is bringing home the calf, he said its a boy.
When he called to tell me about it, the calf was only an hour old, and was starting to walk.
Anyways, they bought him a water tub, a bottle and milk replacer.
He is brown and white, I will be taking care of him ( I take care of all the animals, and usually take care of any rescue's, injury's etc or strays, Injuries only if a vet isnt present and can't get there)
Anyway's, you usually have to open his mouth, and tickle the roof of his mouth to get him to suck your finger, than pop in the water bottle.
Any more tips ?
I did this before, when my friend had a baby deer they found on the side of the highway, I took care of him the whole summer and bottle fed him etc.
They will be back home at 5AM. More photos and news will follow :) !
