This is a hard, knotty condition of the udder, which sometimes follows
calving, in consequence of the sudden distention of the bag with milk;
and the inflammation which supervenes causes a congealed or coagulated
condition of the milk to take place, of which, if neglected, suppuration
and abscesses are the result.

Treatment.--Let the calf suck the dam as speedily as possible, and, if
the hardness is not then removed, foment the udder with warm water;
after which, wipe it dry, and apply to the entire surface melted lard as
hot as the animal will bear. This is, generally, all that is required,
the most obstinate cases yielding to it. If abscesses form, they should
be lanced.
