Original text on this topic:
Basel Zoo, 1956. The mother immediately licked her baby clean, and then lay down beside it on the bedding straw. The calf made its first effort to stand up 25 minutes after it was born, but succeeded in doing so only half an hour later. It first fed from its mother after two hours. Some time later the mother ate up the entire after-birth.
