Arnica – for any physical injury, eg lameness from bruising, mastitis from a kick in the udder, falls, prolonged calvings where cow/calf are exhausted.
Aconite – for any ‘stressful’ situation where animals are likely to be fearful, anxious or experience shock – all vet visits including TB testing, the crush, all situations that are new to the animal, transportation, separation, etc. Also, as mentioned, any cough, chill, high temperature that comes on from bitter cold weather or wind.
Belladonna – early stages of mastitis when the udder is hot and hard and the cow reacts – possibly violently – when the udder is touched.
Hypericum – injuries to spinal nerves from falls or birth (downer cow).
Ignatia – stress of separation – weaning, loss of calf, loss of companion.
Phytolacca decandra is probably the best remedy for the treatment of mastitis. Most of the symptoms of Phytolacca decandra are in the glands (Morrison, 1993: 297), with special
affinity for the breasts and glands of woman. It is indicated in mastitis and other breast disorders. (Murphy, 2000: 1360) The root is used to regulate any abnormality in the milk of cows, incl. scanty;
thick; watery or curdy milk; and milk containing blood or pus. In breast indurations and abscesses of nursing woman and even in cancers, its action has been well confirmed. (Clarke, 1991: 804)
Homoeopathic vets often use nosodes to try and prevent the spread of some of the more common diseases (Hansford and Pinkus, 1998: 4), and also to prevent the development of specific disease syndromes (Day, 1995: 30).
With nosode therapy, more attention is paid to the causative agent than to the symptoms themselves. This enables treatment to be instituted on a wide scale that requires less time and energy from
the veterinary practitioner. (Day, 1992) Nosode therapy seems to be reasonably effective, and provides an easy approach to farmers who experience difficulty in selecting the appropriate remedy for specific individual cases of mastitis (Hansford and Pinkus, 1998: 28). Section 2.8.7 considers previous trials in which homoeopathic remedies were used in the prophylaxis of bovine mastitis.
Three of the four studies related administered nosodes as the prophylactic remedy.
A single homoeopathic remedy is the best option (Day, 1995: 32). Day (1995: 27) suggested a treatment and prevention strategy that consists of treating the group holistically as if it were a single animal. Every symptom observed in the group is seen as symptom of the hypothetical individual. If this is done correctly, it should be possible to find a single remedy to perform the required task,
"It follows undeniably that the sum of all the symptoms and conditions in each individual case of disease must be the sole indication, the sole guide to direct us in the choice of the remedy" (Hahnemann, 1995: 106). "In no case under treatment is it necessary and therefore not permissible to administer to a patient more than one single, simple medicinal substance at a time" (Hahnemann, 1995: 296).
According to Macleod (1991), Phytolacca decandra is probably the best remedy for the treatment of mastitis. Most of the symptoms of Phytolacca decandra are in the glands (Morrison, 1993: 297),
special affinity for the breasts and glands of woman. It is indicated in mastitis and other breast disorders. (Murphy, 2000: 1360) The root is used to regulate any abnormality in the milk of cows, incl. scanty; thick; watery or curdy milk; and milk containing blood or pus. In breast indurations and abscesses of nursing woman and even in cancers, its action has been well confirmed. (Clarke, 1991: 804)

Chinesisches Sternzeichen Büffel / Ochse / Stier:
Der Ochse ist ein zuverlässiger und hilfsbereiter Mensch. Er liebt die Geselligkeit, bevorzugt aber seine vertraute Umgebung. Ein Ochse braucht Zeit, um sich an Veränderungen zu gewöhnen.
Meistens sind im Zeichen des Ochsen Geborene kraftvolle und willensstarke Menschen, die sehr zäh sein können. Sie verfügen in allen Lebenssituationen über eine große Geduld. In der Regel führen
sie das einmal Begonnene in Ruhe zu Ende. Sie lassen sich nur selten von ihren Vorhaben abhalten oder sich durch Zwischenfälle beirren.
Manchmal wirken sie in ihren Handlungen etwas behäbig oder langsam, und oftmals lässt ihre Willensstärke sie stur und störrisch erscheinen. Im Umgang mit anderen Menschen erwecken sie manchmal den Eindruck ungehobelt und grob zu sein, da sie schnell unflexibel oder bockig werden, sobald sie sich in ihren Zielen oder Vorhaben beschränkt fühlen. Doch dieses Verhalten gleichen sie durch ihr sonniges Gemüt wieder aus.
Der Ochse ist häuslich und legt großen Wert auf Konventionen. Seine konservative Grundeinstellung macht ihn zu einem verlässlichen Freund. Doch kann der Ochse auch sehr Besitz ergreifend sein,
wenn sein Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit nicht ausreichend gestillt wird.

Prayer and Abundance
In the Lakota tradition it was the White Buffalo Calf Woman who brought the sacred pipe to the people and taught them to pray. The bowl of the pipe was the receptacle that held tobacco, an herb with male and female medicine. The seeding life.
In the coming together of male and female, the connection to the divine energy of the Great Spirit was made. As the pipe was loaded with Tobacco, every family in nature was asked to enter into the pipe and share its medicine as prayer and praise to the heavens.
The smoke was considered to be visual prayer, and was very sacred and cleansing.
All animals are sacred, but in many traditions White Buffalo is most sacred. The appearance of White Buffalo is asign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe is being honored, and that the promises of prophesy are being fulfilled. White Buffalo signals a time of abundance and plenty.
Buffalo was the major source of sustenance for the Plains Indians. It gave meant for food, hides for clothing, warm and soft robes for long winters, and hooves for glue. The medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed to every living part of creation. Because of its desire to give the gifts that its body provided, and because of its willingness to be used on Earth for the highest good before entering the hunting grounds of Spirit,
Buffalo did not readily stampede and run from hunters.
To use Buffalo medicine is to smoke the pipe in a sacred manner, and to give praise for the richness of life to be shared with all races, all creatures, all nations, and all life. It means smoking for others to that their needs are met, praying for the good of all things in harmony, and accepting the Great Mystery as part of that harmony.
If you have drawn the Buffalo card, you may be asked to use your energy in prayer. You may also be called upon to be an instrument of someone else's answer to a prayer. this could portend a time of recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life, albeit different from your own. To honor another's pathway, even if it brings you a sadness, is a part of the message that Buffalo brings. This may be a time of reconnection to the meaning of life and the value of peace. Most assuredly this time will bring serenity amidst chaos if you pray in earnest for enlightenment and the power of calmness and give
praise for the gifts you already have.
Buffalo medicine is a sign that you achieve nothing without the aid of the Great Spirit and that you must be humble enough for that assistance and then be grateful for what you receive.
To receive Buffalo upside-down is a signal that you have forgotten to seek help when it has been needed. If your hand is closed in a fist, you cannot receive the bounty of abundance. In understanding the significance of the reversed Buffalo, you may well ask yourself.
1. Have I forgotten my eternal partner, Great Spirit?
2. Am I pushing myself too fast in the physical world and keeping myself from seeing the importance of reunion with the Source of all life?
3. Have I forgotten to honor the ways of others and to afford them the same respect that I wish to receive for myself?
4. Am I feeling like my life is being used for the highest good at this time?
5. Have I forgotten to be grateful for my life, my possessions, my talents, my abilities, my health, my family, or my friends?
6. Is it time to make peace with another, or to make peace with some inner conflict I have so that I may walk in balance again?
Become Buffalo. Feel the smoke of prayer and praise change your Buffalo robe to white so that you may be an answer to the prayers of the world.
The Buffalo was the most sacred of all animals to the American Indian because it gave entirely of itself providing not only food, but also materials for clothing, housing, cooking utensils and equipment, and weapons. As a power animal, Buffalo is thus concerned with provision nd abundance, with sustenance and sharing. It stresses the importance of being prepared to share one's energies with others, and to recognize other people's needs.
Buffalo is also symbolic of Wakan-Tanka - the Great Spirit in manifestation, who was also referred to as the Great Everything - and is a reminder that whatever talents and abilities we may have they all derive from the source of the Great Provider. So Buffalo as a power animal serves as a reminder that everything we possess is but temporary, and that true happiness can never be attained alone; it comes through sharing what one has, and what one is, with others. Sharing and caring.
Make way for abundance. Release fear of lack or scarcity. Open yourself to receive.

Prolapsus Uteri Post Partum in Cows
Kent’s repertory has a rubric: “Female, prolapsus uteri straining from” with one single remedy: Aur-met.
After birth the cow goes on pushing madly. It’s often a fleshy, sound heifer. On arriving, give the cow some granules of Aurum C 5 between lip and gum, then loosen your tie, pick off the placenta
and you’ll see that the huge purple mass gets smaller and smaller and light pink. You can then push it back, even without epidural anesthesia, and fill it with fresh water to get rid of every remaining
fold, which would let the cow push again.
Sep. Mostly on elder, worn-out cows, is due to relaxed fiber. If the cow goes on pushing, you can add Aurum (congestion and intolerance to pain). Don’t try this on sows! The prolapsed uterus is too
long, veins and arteries are too much stretched and this causes deadly circulatory disturbances.

Cows are grazers. They live in the midst of the food they eat. The cow lowers its head to the ground and touches the meadow plants (or the hay in its stall) with the front end of its soft, moist snout.
The cow does not bite off the plants with its teeth or lips, but reaches out with its rough, muscular tongue, enwraps the plants, and tears them off. It clearly needs to use its tongue in this way - cattle
that receive soft feed begin to lick their fellow cows much more than usual. The tongue needs the stimulation of roughage.
After it has torn off a few portions and chewed a bit, the cow swallows a mouthful. This activity continues for a few hours. The food reaches the rumen, the huge first chamber of the four-chambered stomach. Occupying the entire left side of the abdominal cavity, the rumen can hold forty-five gallons.
Digestion in the rumen is facilitated by microorganisms that break down cellulose, the main, hard to digest component of roughage. Bacterial activity, the secretion of digestive juices, and the muscle activity of the rumen are all stimulated by roughage. In fact, the rumen only finishes its development and becomes functional when a calf begins to feed on grass or hay.
When the rumen is about half-full, portions of the partially digested food are regurgitated back into the mouth. Rumination begins. Cows usually lie on the ground while ruminating. They grind their food between their large cheek teeth in rhythmical, circling motions of the lower jaw. You are probably familiar with the picture of calm presented by a herd of cows, lying in a meadow, their activity focused inwardly on grinding and digestion.
Digestion involves an intensive production, circulation, and secretion of body fluids. The process begins in the head. While the cow is ruminating, the saliva glands secrete copious amounts of saliva –
up to forty gallons a day. The drier the feed (hay), the more the saliva, and the greater the amount of water a cow drinks.
[E. M. Kranich] functionally one can consider the mouth to be a fifth chamber of the stomach.
After rumination, the food is swallowed, entering first the other three chambers of the stomach and then the small intestine. In these organs, fluids are removed from the food and new digestive juices are secreted until finally the cow has broken down its food to a point where it can be taken up by the blood.
Characteristic for cows is their fluid dung, in contrast to the solid dung of other ruminants like sheep or deer. The cow's large intestine does not absorb as much fluid out of this final section of the digestive tract. In fact, from its moist snout, through the whole digestive tract, and finally in its dung, the cow shows more fluidity than other ruminants.
The digestive process is related to the blood - a fluid organ that connects all organs of the body. For every quart of saliva, three hundred quarts of blood pass through the salivary glands. The other digestive organs are sustained by a similarly strong circulation.
The intensive transformation of substances and secretion of fluids characterizing the digestive process are heightened in the formation and secretion of milk. Substances produced by digestion are withdrawn from the blood in the udder. For every quart of milk, three to five hundred quarts of blood pass through the udder. Glands in the udder then create a wholly new substance - milk. This is it serves another growing organism - the calf. The cow only begins to produce milk after she has given birth to a calf, and the calf has begun to suck on the teats.
When we build up a picture of the cow in this way, we begin to see the cow as a total organism.
