Is the whole sack full? Can you feel two testicles? If so are they loose? Could be its herniated, if it is you won't want to cut him. I think I would start with a small cut, you should be able to tell if there is stuff in there you don't want to deal with. :wink:
I had one the other day that had his intestines come out his naval. Yuck.

let's not call names! somrtimes this forum reminds me of my 2 kids, 16 and 13, geez, talk about let's bicker about what color the sky is!!!

anyway, i'd like to hear what the vet says, but it sounds to me like one testicle descended (sp?), and you definitely want to cut him (why breed that?), but he might end up staggy. who cares if you sell calves??

just got home from the vet with the calf.We just cut him he had one nut the size of a lemon and one the size of a grape.The vein going to the large one was the size of a finger and the vet tied it off to keep from bleeding.The small nut was way up inside and took some digging to get at it.

Hey farmer2005! Is that a picture of you on your avatar? If it is, what is your breeding season? :wink:
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
