Abstract:
A six years old Holstein Friesian cow in a private dairy farm was suffering from dystocia. The cow was attended in the barn and vaginal examination revealed the fetus in the birth canal with posterior longitudinal presentation, right dorso ilial position with both the hind legs twisted backward and hooves stuck on left lateral wall of the pelvic cavity. The hind legs were flexed and joints ankylosed to a greater extent. The monster fetus was delivered per vagina with some manipulation and forced extraction. The fetus was alive at birth but succumbed within half an hour of delivery with some frothy fluid exudation from mouth and nostrils. The flexure and ankylosis of all the joints of four limbs were suggestive of arthrogryposis in the calf which was successfully delivered through trans-vaginal approach.
