Description A Basket of Chips gave her food in very small quantities. But there was nothing she would touch, yet she was very hungry and only weighed a pound and three-quarters. I knew she must begin eating so I wired in a dry spot of ground that had a roof over it and gave her a dish of water and some cottage cheese. But she would not touch it. She looked and smelled of it but said, "You don't know anything about such cases as mine." The next day I saw her picking at some dry fragments of straw and leaves.

The moment the cow refuses her food don't think by a change, or something especially tempting, you can induce her to eat. She is not like your little boy, or yourself. When Nature has put up the flag he would slow up, but you bribe him by some delicacy all the worse for him, and soon it is a case for the doctor.
