Convincing A Cow To Adopt A Calf
I enjoyed reading the article in your last issue on convincing a cow to adopt a calf, if her own calf dies at birth. Back when I had stock cows I came up with an easier way.
  I would put the cow inside a pen and then pour a little vanilla extract down her nostrils and into her mouth. Then I used a rag to smear vanilla extract on the calf. All the cow could smell and taste was vanilla extract.
  Any time I tried this idea it always worked - the cow immediately adopted the calf as her own. (Charles Kunau, 32909 320th St., Bellevue, Iowa 52031 ph 563 542-4214; charliekunau@hotmail.com)
