At this point I would follow very closly the directions on the replacer you are feeding. Also pinch his skin and see if he is dehydrated it might not hurt to get him some calf electrolytes if he is. 4 bottles seems like alot but then I am sorry I can't remeber how old he is. We always gave ours one at a time and maybe 3 to 4 times per day. The cows udder is called a bag and each teat has it's own quarter. From what you are saying it sounds like either she has dried up in 3 of the 4 quarters or they are really infected and not working right. Also the scar tissue from mastitis can cause scarring that will keep them from milking properly. That would be why we are bottling little Sara (aka LU). Her mom has had mastitis so bad she has next to no milk. Anyway gotta go goat hater just got cleaned for dinner we have been at a speed show all day and a rodeo all of yesturday. I'll post more in the am. Just checked with Andy he said that the cow wouldn't dry that fast she is probally very infected if thats the case she should be treated Mastitis will kill. Let me know what happens.
