Today after a tough Friday (I was admitted to emergency to have an abscess lanced due to a MRCS (staph) infection.
Tony came in and told me that Chica had a miscarriage (aborted). She lost her calf at nearly 7 months. He said that she was in the “hospital” pen. She was doing well and eating. He said that our employee, Jaime, told him that “I am sad for Patrona, she is not good today….” These things happen but we are always saddened.
I could not stay in when I knew Chica was in the hospital pen. Cows are creatures of habit and this was a new area. I didn’t want her to be nervous. Chica though, is a very tolerant cow. As I hobbled up to her she galloped on over. She was happy to see me. She was even patient for this video.
Chica is a young cow. She will have some rest time and then we will try again.
