Back in October I wrote the blog Bringing in the cows and told of a cow where I milk, that back in the Summer, had suddenly gone blind and then as quick as she lost her sight regained it. We were unsure of the cause, as blood tests came back with nothing. At the time she was around 3 months pregnant and only time would tell if what had caused her sudden blindness would have an effect on the development of the fetus. I'm pleased to tell that she has carried full term and last night produced a grand Angus/Frisian bull calf, both mother and calf are fit and well. She came in the parlour tonight for her first time to be milked after calving. 'All's well that ends well.'
