Farmers and ranchers were most concerned about rabid dogs biting cattle 20 years ago. Not now. Today, a bite from an infected wild animal, such as a fox or raccoon, is the more common method of infection in cattle.
Time is of the essence when a calving cow or heifer has a situation where the calf is coming backwards. If the umbilical cord is totally pinched by the pelvic rim, the calf can only survive about four minutes.
