Are there any hedge apple (osage orange) growing in the pasture. It is not normal for cattle to vomit. What appears as vomit is actually some food and water which is trapped between the throat and the esophageal sphincter at the rumen/reticulum opening. The apple can not pass into the rumen blocking the movement of food and water. There can be quite a volume caught here. The animal dies of dehydration. Sometimes cattle eat them when other food is scarce.
I forgot to include the picture of her sitting several hours before I found her
I never got a look at her poop or teeth. All I know is that they were “dewormed” before arrival.
I drug her out to a far pasture and closed the gate to it. Cows can’t access her body
The vomit was very watery consistency and of course green. No blood in it
I’m new to owning cattle. I’ll keep that penicillin comment in mind and do some research on that

Cattle that old don't get blackleg.
Wild hogs are not treated as domestic inspected animals. The only animals that need to be inspected are those that the end product is going to be sold. If you have deer on your property and want to sell the meat then they have to be inspected before they are killed.How does he get away with donating the hog meat. I’m helping a landowner nearby trapping and was looking into donating the meat and hit a roadblock. Wild hogs are treated just like domestic and they must be inspected by a usda inspector before they are killed in order to donate/sell the meat. Is he also a certified usda inspector?
