Hi Ben,
Welcome to the forum, sorry to hear about your cow.
If your cow is still down you have to get her up again before you consider further treatment, a tractor with a front loader and slings, do what ever you can but get her back up !
Have you tried peanut oil [about 1 litre] as a drench ? If she is still blown you might have to consider a trocar/cannula but this is really only a job for an experienced person, might be an idea to call your vet.
Good luck, please keep us appraised eh ?
