Best ways to manage Bovine Respiratory Disease in the winter months
The most important thing a producer can do for their herd is to minimize stressors. The key part of that is preparation.
“Prepare your facilities, prepare your protocols, talk to your local veterinarian, and really work to be prepared to fend off that disease that we know we’re going to see. With that disease. our goal is to prevent it. We’re watching those calves as close as we can, and we’re looking for that droopy ear, that nasal discharge, that calf with his head down, dragging a foot, that calf that hasn’t groomed itself. Identifying and understanding those subtle hints and subtle signs of disease are critical and finding them early and treating them early is a critical part to success.”
