We are treating all the calves for coccidia (with very, very large pills) and all have responded well except little Number 31. He was the first to exhibit symptoms and still seems a little week. I did get confirmation that he is drinking his electrolytes but I’m anxious to see him out on pasture with the others.

These pills are approximately 3 inches long and this is the balling gun used to get the pills far enough into the cows mouths for them to swallow the pills.

I wasn’t home when the men administered the meds but they get another dose tomorrow, so I can be front and center, you know, should I want to be. Hopefully it will be what my sweet little No. 31 needs to be up and doing all the cow-ish things the other calves do.
