Do you access to Banamine (flunixin meglumine). (Maybe a neighbor has some or call your local vet.) I would give this calf a dose of that and try to get it to swallow a pint or so of vegetable or mineral oil. (Could put that in esophageal feeder...)
Basically like treating colic in a horse. Sometimes it is a simple as an air bubble causing discomfort, sometimes it is as complicated as a loop a bowel through and strangulated in a mesenteric tear. So sometimes they make it and sometimes they don't. Do what you can and pray for the best.
