- A: You have to always remember that you’re not feeding the cow — you’re feeding her rumen microbes. The rumen microbes are balanced to digest the ration that the cow gets day in and day out. Mess up those rumen microbes and you have a very sick cow.Feeding things outside of the ration they are used to causes the rumen microbes to go crazy. Some rumen microbes, release gas when presented with corn stalks/leaves (or lush clover/alfalfa) which causes the cow to bloat — the rumen blows up due to frothy gas formation. They can’t release the frothy gas, and the pressure that builds compresses their heart/lungs so that they die of suffocation.The other problem that especially corn stalks/leaves can cause is a toxic reaction. Some animal harbor certain clostridial bactera in their rumens, these clostridial bacteria when exposed to the types of sugars in corn, release toxins which are fatal to the animal — this reaction is sometimes called “overeating disease” in sheep and goats, but is actually a form of enterotoxemia and affects cattle just as readily.Bottom line — never feed another person’s animals without their express permission, Your good-natured gesture could cost the animal it’s life..

- A: NO COW’S MILK- period!!!! No wonder she’s been sick!Why didn’t you post a question about what you could feed her when you got her if you knew not to feed her cow’s milk? (*sigh*)If I had to guess, she looks 4-5 weeks. That means she has teeth.What you CAN feed her: canned cat food or pureed LEAN meatsmall amounts of soft boiled eggplain yogurta little goat’s milk but if you get her eating meat or canned food she does not really have to have milk.Leave fresh water out for her near the food at all times. Make sure the container is very low sided. She’ll start drinking it when she’s ready.Introduce new foods slowly & don’t add anything new till you know she’s doing well on what you’ve already tried.Put whatever you are introducing on something nearly flat, put her in front of it, wipe a little on her gums/ let her lick a little from your finger & be prepared for a mess because the little ones usually want to stand in what they’re eating.Good luck!
