The dogs are doing their job very well with the stock they are in charge of. The problem is that the cows do not want the dogs near them and more so now with the killings. I just lost my 6th calf Wed night.

Also the cattle are spread out over many acres so even getting a donkey may not work as it could not be with all the cattle all the time

Actually when my horse was alive she stood guard over mom while she was calving. The cow was not exactly happy but tolerated it but the when the horse started to try and claim the calves as hers and would run the moms off I had to move the horse to her own pasture

Well for what it is costing you it might be worth getting morevthen 1 donkey. I look at my.livestock as an investment so buying a few donkeys to protect them is simply protecting your investment.

If night hunting was still in this would be cake. These don't move as much in daylight

Sorry for your losses. How big is your operation (heads/acres)?
