It has been quite a week on the homestead. Our calf, Henry, has gotten very sick and the vet didn't
think he would make it through the night. Come with us as we see if he will recover.

****** About Living Traditions Homestead ******
Living Traditions Homestead is all about living a simple and sustainable way of life. We believe the world has gotten too “busy” and that people are missing out on many of the true blessings this world has to offer. We started as a small urban homestead in Gilbert, AZ and after the city grew up around us, decided it was time leave corporate America and take a big leap of faith by moving our family to the Missouri Ozarks.
We put out 2 new videos every week! Wednesday and Saturday. We hope you will become part of our homestead family by subscribing to our channel and watching as we give up the rat race and live simpler, more fulfilling life in the country.

I strongly suggest that you learn how to tube a calf, so you’re not punching holes into them. I worked with cattle for over 15yrs, there’s a lot to learn.

I had a calf that kept getting into the creep feed and bloated. I did the tube and followed with mineral oil to reduce further bloating. I locked him and his mom in the corral for about a week before turning him out. Calf immediately went back and re-bloated on creep feed. Did the tube and oil again and sent him to the stockyard. Didn’t use any meds, so there was no withdrawal period. Not fun and was a negative, but selling him at four months was better than dragging him away. Sorry you went through all of this.

U both R GREAT FURRY CRITTER PARENTS!!!! The love/concern/& compassion that U both show to Henry is amazing. It must be very hard having a farm W/All the animals that U do & not get DEEPLY ATTACHED to certain ones. My problem would be that I'd get so attached to ALL of them that I'd NEVER be able to eat meat again EVER... I'm sorta new to Ur Vlogs so U don't know me well, so I'll tell U a little bit about me & then I'd love to pray for U. My name is Adele Hayes I live in Zeeland Michigan W/my 2nd husband Tim. All My Children have since grown up & moved away to raise their own families. I love to pray for people & I'm a firm believer that if I say that I'm going to pray for U that I do it right then & there, otherwise the cares of this world will slip in & the next thing U know I've simply forgotten to keep my word & pray. That being said I'd like to pray for U right now. Father God, I lift Kevin & Sarah up before Ur throne of GRACE, Bless them Lord in every area of their lives. place a hedge of protection around them & their Homestead. as they care for the animals that U've entrusted them to raise up care for & then either process them for their family or sell them off for profit I ask that U'd grant them wisdom in every area so that they can take proper care of the animals that They have @ the Homestead. Which brings us to Henry Lord, They aren't really sure what his problem has been, but he's been a very sick little cow. Thank U for bring Henry out of the danger zone & healing his body I ask that U'd meet every need that they have. Cause their lives to prosper in Jesus name Amen!

Dad said his father would poke a hole inside the cow or calf with a sharp stick or knife to let the air escape out of them. It sounds bad, but it keeps them alive. They don't die from too much gas.

sorry to say= but if he didn't get his birth mom's milk for first 3 days --he's probably doomed --no hope. But is he did--them hit him with penicilin and then teramycian -- sorry for the spelling. the black stool worries me the most-- and that points to him not getting the birth mom's milk for the first few days I'm sorry i don't have more hope but i've seen this before.

@Heather H 👋 hey, no worries, we are all different and have preferences. I, like you, follow many homesteaders and I like some more than the others. Even the ones I like, there are things in which I definitely do not agree with them but hey.. that is how it is we are all different and unique little humans 💕👍

@Griselda Osorio I follow her channel but she comes across way more arrogant and meanish to me. I used to love her channel but I think that she has let so many followers go to her head. I follow a LOT of homesteaders and I have never seen anyone that comes across in the manner that she has as of late. She used to be so fun to watch but now... There are so many other good channels. Like Weed 'em and Reap, White House on the Hill, Justin Rhodes... I'm sorry for sharing my thoughts on that particular channel. I really do appreciate the recommendation. She is just not for me anymore unfortunately. In this world we live in, we need kindness more than anything.

Hopefully Henry will continue to improve. You have both done as much as you can for him, now it's up to Henry to heal. Rest and sleep after a good feed and some normal movement is what he needs. Tomorrow you will probably know which way he is going to go, uphill or downhill. We all hope it's uphill.

My grandparents were lifelong were all my uncles, they each had large dairies in Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley Calif....where my grandpa had 1,000 cows and drive thru dairy, Van Nuys quality dairy.. In the Chino valley area, east of Los Angeles has tons of the end of each long driveway, they'd put their dead calves along the road for the mornings "pick ups" where they'd be taken to make pet food OR? So cow manure smells like happy memories of living and running around the dairies....finding huge magnets was always fun...they're about 4 inches long, 1" wide thats put inside cows stomachs to collect the metal accidently left from undoing bales of hay back in 50-60s. My sister is now a U of O professor who specializes in milk production, large animal vet stuff....and me....We love watching the cows from a distance, not into owning them

He appears fine... Beef crosses are pretty hardy.. And that with a will to live❤.. Bloat can be deadly, you can always relive this by putting a tube down to his stomach through his mouth, this allows the gas to escape... We've had to cut through, like your vet did & it is instant relief

Barn cats are gold. Cousin had some hybrid bobcats show up at his barn. Not tame at all but not near as big as bobcats. As soon as the rat population was gone, so were they. He wished someone would breed them for sale.

First of all, she is a Jersey cow and they are shaped completely different from a beef cow. Second, when we had the vet out to check the calf, he commented what great condition our cow was in. She is in very good, healthy condition. Here is an entire video we did addressing this question.

I’m sure you have checked your land for any plants that are not good for cows, but you might want to do it again. There’s a specific weed that grows here in Minnesota that causes bloat in cows. I’ve seen it in Wisconsin too so I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.

My prayers go out to you and Henry! His bloating reminds me of something that happened to one of my calves years n years ago, where we had some weeds growing in our back pasture , sorry can't remember the name for the life of me.. but it had little prickles on it, anyways it gave my calf the worst indigestion and I had to give him a pill every few hours. My foster father was told to look for and remove the weed, roots n all, perhaps your vet would know of such a plant? it was like nearly 40 yrs ago sorry I can't remember the plant though I been trying very hard to remember.

Its not uncommon for cows to "get over on their back" and not be able to get up. They will bloat and die very quickly. I've not seen that with a calf before, but maybe Henry was able to get himself righted before it was too late (if that is what happened). Have you thought about halter training Henry and Hudson if you will be working with them often? It could make that easier . . .
