Local Cures.
A Cow with a Swollen Udder.

Pull some wild camomile and boil it. Strain the juice and wash the swelling twice or three times a day. This will reduce the swelling and make the udder all right.
My neighbour Pat Mangan, Ballymayock, had a cow with a swollen udder and this treatment cured her completely in two or three days.
