Following a calf and heifer wellness plan pays in the long run.

Work with your veterinarian — and other advisors specializing in calves — to establish protocols for nutrition, environmental management and disease prevention at these life stages:

  • Newborn calves
  • Unweaned calves
  • Weaned heifers
  • Breeding heifers

Take steps to better manage BRD:

  • Identify on-farm pathogens
  • Vaccinate for BRD
  • Identify high-risk time periods
  • Address outbreaks quickly
  • Strategically use antibiotics for control during high-risk times
  • Keep calf health records
  • Meet nutritional requirements, including colostrum at birth
  • Provide proper ventilation
