Tree Topping

This machine has been designed and built to handle trees that other hedge trimmers can't or won't even try, starting with its specially made saw blade which is 1600mm across and hardened steel. Because of its revolving blade weight, it cuts through most large branches and trees in one slice.

9 Month old Calf Down
Posted 7 Jun 13
Hi We have a 9 month old calf which we found down, unable to get up in the paddock last Sunday. We have had the vet out and he can find no problems but gave antibiotics just in case. We have been tube feeding electrolytes but the calf is now drinking form a bucket, eating grain, grass and willow leaves. He seems healthy but still not able to stand. We have been hanging from a sling to try and get him to take his own weight but so far no luck. He seems to have feeling in his legs but no desire to get up himself. Does anyone have any ideas on what could possibly be wrong or how to get this calf up on his feet again. Cheers.

No more access than the other 10 calves who are fine.
Last night he managed to move himself around the barn but still not standing.
