    Was a massive pull job ...the calf was massive even though we had the heifer on restricted diet etc.
    Anyway heifer down so got the very. ..she gave her two bottles calcium into vein and pain relief 7 days ago...heifer making great attempts to get up but just wasn't making it the full way...moved her out to field 3 days ago and she went down hill..
    Got another bottle of calcium under skin and pain relief yesterday but today she is just giving up not eating or drinking leavine the head down.
    Any advice on how to get this heifer up and going again
