Hello,
I just registered, I am seeking help. I am new to owning cattle and I have a cow that has a weird udder, 1 of the teats is gigantic they are not all the same size. I am somewhat worried, she has a 2 month old calf that is healthy and nurses. If it was just a little bigger I wouldn't think anything of it. But it is HUGE. Please let me know your thoughts, causes, remedies. Thanks for the help

Can you put her in a chute and milk out the big teat?

Probably a candidate to cull in the fall and not keep a Hfrs off her for replacement.

When she utters, do you get a warm feeling?

If you had started milking her out earlier, you might have saved the quarter, would bet it's hard and pretty much shot by now.

Sounds like Mastitis to me, if so need to get it treated before it spreads to the other quarters.
