WyomingRancher are you saying this is a normal part of her cleaning out ? the reason i ask is our vet always say they should be done cleaning out 12 hours after birth

I'd call it normal remember we've most likely calved more cows than a vet.

I bet ya she is fine and just taking her time finishing cleaning out. Keep an eye on her and if she keeps messing around or acts infected then treat her. :D I am not a vet but i play one on TV. Kidding. Good luck

Yeah, if it isn't tissue looking, I wouldn't get very concerned. They can leak a little goop for a while after they calve. Even if it is tissue, I still wouldn't get too worried if she's still feeling good, just give her some antibiotics.

Sounds pretty normal to me...as long as it doesn't appear to be any remaining afterbirth. Although on that regard, last year I kept records on all the cows that had some retained afterbirth a day or so after delivering just to see if they would breed up or not (we got pretty lazy and didn't doctor them) and they ALL bred back up. Ugly to see though; and like I said we got pretty lazy about it! :oops:
