This is my first cow and I hoped for her to one day be our grass based family milk cow.

If you dont understand why you are doing something (i.e. giving milk, giving vitamins, giving antibiotics, giving grain), than how can you expect it to be helpful? I am not tring to be overly harsh, but this is a living creature you are experimenting with. See a vet, or at least consult with a knowledgable neighbor.
Internet advice and random experimentation is not a sound way to care for compromised animals. I wish you and your calf the best, good luck.
