    Yes and it can cause a world of problems.
    My recommendation is to put in a crown weaning ring for 4-6 months.

    We have two options for cows who nurse themselves or others:
    A) have the vet split their younger so they cannot
    B) sell them

    We don't like the first so we usually just self them. Not only do they just suck milk, they're sucking your profits in the form of growth in calves.
