What types of things would you keep on hand for cattle first aid.
i guess the kits would vary whether you have beef or dairy cattle, so its probably best to separate into 2 groups, although i know some items would cross over.
i would like suggestions to be as natural as possible - but keeping in mind you don't want to lose a $2000 cow because you don't have a $10 tube of [unnatural] calcium.
calcium (for milk fever)
something to solve a major bloat problem (forget the product name. a knife in extreme cases )
calf pulling chains
plastic gloves (shoulder length and regular)
Beef: (i personally dont have much experience here)
something to solve a major bloat problem
please quote and add/correct these lists.
thanks in advance.
