Hi Alixolson,
You must keep the calf as confined as possible to keep it from using the leg, make sure it is firmly splinted to prevent any movement, but not too tight so as to stop blood circulation. I doubt the calf will ever be 100% mobile and might have to stay in a kraal and be fed untill ready for slaughter, just depends on how badly it limps.
Where are you in Namibia? I exported the first Tuli cattle to Okahanja in 1978 next to where the Omatako dam is, welcome to the forum, hope to have some more discussions with you.
