Are you creep feeding the calves? if so what on, is it a ration you have fed before? Blackleg is transferred through feed, hay or pasture, if your pasture is known not to be contaminated then you may want to look at your feed sources. Even if it does not turn out to be blackleg this time vaccination is cheap, if you are penning them all now to vaccinate you may want to administer a large dose of penicillin as antibiotics are the only treatment for blackleg, 9 times out of 10 there is not time to treat an animal because by the time they show serious symptoms like bloating in the fore quarters or limping they are too far gone. What ever else you do don't let those carcasses contaminate your lots and pastures, burn them and scrape and lime the spot where they are burned and keep cattle off of the spot at least until spring. In my state if blackleg is suspected or if a vet conducted postmortem proves it then you have to notify the livestock and brand commission.
