Hi, after reading this remarkable paragraph i am as well happy to share my know-how here with colleagues.

Keep this going please, great job!

We have had our share of newborn pigs and calves in the bathroom too. We have always had a heater in the bathroom as a combo heater/ceiling fan/light. This warms the room very well and we use a hair dryer in addition to vigorous rubbing with old towels. Hopefully, we will never have to do the warm bath, but that is a good idea. Did the cow accept the calf after it had the bath?

That's really interesting Carol. I would have never thought of doing that. That's a true cowgirl...willing to do whatever it takes to save the calves! Way to go!!!

Hi
I have another way to alleve hypothermia in a newborn calf. It involves bringing the calf in to the house but worth it. I fill a tub or large wash sink with very warm water and immerse the calf. This warms its entire body and I've saved foals in this manner as well as ice cold newborn puppies ( in my kitchen sink).
Hope this helps someone.
Carol
