The following principles apply to the management of all down cows, whatever the cause:
1. check the cow’s environment
2. determine the cause (get a diagnosis) immediately
3. treat the problem appropriately and promptly– early treatment promotes early recovery
4. if possible, get her back on her feet quickly to avoid secondary damage
5. if her chances of recovery are low, arrange for the cow to be humanely destroyed on site without delay.
When should the lifter be used and how?
a). Lifting should only be done if it is effective and supervised. Cows that are lifted ineffectively or unsupervised
will have a poorer chance of recovery than those who are not lifted.
Cows that are unable to stand ‘effectively’ or are unwilling to try to stand ‘effectively’ are best nursed without lifting, providing the bedding is suitable and they are rolled regularly, if needed.
b). Cow ‘lifters’ are not cow ‘hangers’! Effective lifting means that the cow is able to stand in a natural position and take some of her own weight. If the cow is hanging from a hip clamp or slouching in a sling, without taking any weight on their legs, it can cause her more damage.
Supervision by a competent stockperson is important because down cows tire easily and should then be immediately placed down.
c). Over-lifting can also be a problem as the pressure from lifting devices can cause swellings and pain.
Hip lifters are the easiest method to use and the most common. They are ideal for a quick lift, but are not suitable for extended support due to the trauma they may cause to the hip bones and muscles. They are most useful if the cow can stand when lifted, such as simple milk fever cases.
