Very difficult calving with sciatica syndrome, the cow was placed in the air-cow during 4 days, the needed time for recovery.
Calving was difficult and traumatic, there was a milk fever in addition to the sciatica syndrome. This technique is very clever, because for 4 days without stopping, the cow was supported into the air-cow in a physiological and comfortable position without any pain. With pelvic lifters, we can only lift for short moments because it becomes quickly painful for the cow. The air-cow allows an ideal and comfortable position and the needed time for recovery. But it is better to use the air-cow directly to reduce the risks of injury from lifting attempts and increase the chances of recovery.
