Lost my heaviest milker (14 lbs at 5 weeks fresh) and herd queen yesterday to entero. She was fine the night before and almost dead first thing the next morning, head down and back and temp 97*. No bloat but alot of drooling. I will never forget what entero looks and sounds like. Who knows what set it off- the heavy new growth on the pasture, leaves down from the storm (with tornado damage in sight of our house!!!) that could have blown in on the wind........ I tried to save her, was on the right track, but will do better next time (thanks Kaye). Losing 12 gallons a week shut down all the extra cash that was paying for feed and most of my cheesemaking as well. :sigh :down now I have left the Saanen who is out of production for the rest of the year- if she stays, and the other Alpine/togg milking 11lbs right now. She is terribly depressed with the loss. Worried I'm going to lose her milk as well as last night's milking was a lb short. I got proactive and dosed her with dewormer, BoSe, probiotic paste, and a B complex. She has a history of going down under stress. Anything else to do? Stuck around until she got her fill of alfalfa pellets and took out some warm water...she of course gets her grain on the stand. She was back up to her normal amount of milk this morning so that is good. PS. If you don't see me here much it's because our computer is down. I'll check in when I can and will be back in a few days -hopefully.
