Help keep your cattle protected against BRD

The future of your dairy operation rests in the wellness of your replacement heifers. Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) can cause young calves to face a lifetime of diminished performance down the road.

Research shows that replacement heifers experiencing pneumonia in the first three months of life are more likely to: 2

  • Experience significantly increased mortality
  • Have reduced average daily gain
  • Calve later than unaffected herdmates
  • Produce less milk in at least their first lactation

 

BRD is a leading cause of significant disease in dairy operations.3
  • 22% of unweaned heifer deaths
  • 46% of weaned heifer deaths
