    I dont mean to keep askjng the wrong questions I just dont know the rules. Nor what is the "right" thing to do.

    But if you have a calf that had documented treatment by a vet, could you not keep it seperate? And then test it for antibiotics before she becomes a milk cow? Surely by the time she is old enough to milk, she would have cleared the meds?

    The rules here are if antibiotic (or another forbidden product) is used, animal cannot be used as a milk cow in any capacity. . . not even to feed calves.
    It is what it is.
    Vet did say that this is almost certainly a virus. . . Hits hard, hits fast, antibiotics not even touching it.

    This is honestly harder for the people than the calves. . . The calves essentially slip into what looks like a coma almost within hours. This baby has been completely out of it all day. This morning she didn't even have any eye reflexes. I pulled her eye open and poked it (a legit way vets test responsiveness, I swear,) and she didn't even blink. When I last checked on her, she did have an eye reflex, but appeared to be in a deep deep sleep. She didn't move a bit for any of the needles or tubes, but lifted her head slightly when we piclef hrr up to move her.
    She has also had a dose of banamine in an effory to help her breathing. She is not suffering.

    She died in the night, but her little nest was still cozy this morning, so she died warm and comfy.
