Pulled them off WW/Triticale about month ago due to lack of rains and was getting grazed pretty low.


Sorry man, Been there.

Where you running any magnesium blocks? I don’t think we have had enough moisture for GT but magnesium block are cheap winter insurance.

I had a bad late winter one year as I had 5 in two weeks go down with GT. Lost the first one because I had no clue. After that I became a main veining expert, but didn’t loose any more. Got serious with mag blocks with any heifer or potential bred/wet cow after that.

I’d keep a bottle of Cal Dex CMPK & main vein rig in truck at all times

Today I was wiring some lights in a barn for a guy I was looking at his pasture and saw a coyote this is 130 this afternoon. We hopped in the truck and it was eating on a big headed dead calf. The mom was about 20 feet away and couldn’t get up. He called the guy that leases his pasture and told him. The cow was trying to get up so hopefully they don’t lose her too. Sooner or later it happens to everyone.

Like BoBo said, get mag blocks, rumensin blocks or high mag mineral out quickly. Especially before you turn back out on grain.

You might also get some tubes of Magna Gel, if your uneasy with veining one They look like tubes of caulk. As it greens up and grass tetny becomes more possible for bred and older cows with calves, it can be a lifesaver. It’s an oral supplement but, Instead of oral, insert tube into downed cows rectum and use long screw driver or dowel rod to empty tube into cows anus. Instant magnesium into bloodstream. It’s saved several of my old wheat picker cows with calves on them thru the years.

I haven't had mineral blocks on the ground this year- but do now. Was feeding hay(klein-is what is planted/baled on my place) and keeping Accu Hi-fat tubs.
Will get a bottle of Cal Dex CMPK to keep on hand.

Damn man, sorry to hear you lost her.

I agree with the others here that getting them minerals is very important, especially in this part of the year when everything is dead.

I feed trace minerals and they take it as they need it so there is literally no waste.....thankfully because that chit is near $30/bag now!

I just put it out about 15-20 lbs at a time in a trough under the barn and they take it only when they need it. Sometimes it will stay there 2-3 weeks and other times they clean it up overnight and I'll add more the next day.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Now that’s a cool new trick!! Makes sense on the absorption too. Learned something new today!!

Thanks 3k!

I have 300 sheep/goats and 35 cows. Usually they pound the salt/mineral combo when it's green but this year they've hammered it the entire year. The cows have been particularly hard on it. I mix a bag of mineral to three bags of salt. They can knock off 300lbs in a two-three weeks.
