- The placenta is the
membrane that connects the fetus with the dam. The button like
structures of the placenta, connect with the caruncles of the
- After a normal
calving, the placenta will be expelled within 30minutes to 8 hours.
- If the placenta has
not been released after 12 hours, the cow will have a condition
known as retained placenta.
- The placenta is an
active endocrine organ tat provides a site for nutrient exchange,
facilitates waste removal from the fetus, and provides an
immunological barrier to both the maternal immune system and
- The placenta is
retained in up to 20% of the cows that abort and infertility may be
a sequela. Some serovars can cause sudden decreased milk production.
- Manual removal of the
placenta is not advised. The uterine walls are thin and fragile, and
manipulation of the uterus may cause harm.
- Trimming out the
placenta may decrease the dirt caught by the placenta, however the
pulling force of the placenta's weight will be lost.
- The placenta serves as
the functional unit of exchange between the maternal and fetal
- If the placenta is
dragging on the ground it should be cut off at the level of the
hocks to prevent it from being stepped on by the cow and torn off.
- The basic goal in any
treatment of retained placentas is to return the cow's reproductive
tract to a normal state as quick as possible.
- There are generally
two methods of managing retained placenta when no systemic
involvements are present- manual removal and natural separation.
Manual removal has long been a common practice but should not be
used because of possible injury to the delicate lining of the

- Based on recent
research on retained placenta, the most common recommendation is to
allow the placenta to separate naturally with or without the use of

and purifying immuno-modulating polypeptide from cow placenta, which
is characterized by using steps of anion exchange chromatography,
gel exclusion chromatography and reverse-phase high performance
liquid chrom-atography to isolate and purify immunopolypeptide
