Selection and evaluation of beef heifers (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

Productivity for beef cattle herds has been shown to be increased when a high percentage of heifers become pregnant early in the first breeding season. A producer's heifer selection and development program should result in most heifers in the replacement pool reaching puberty at least 42 days prior to the start of breeding because the conception success to first service is lower on the puberal estrus compared to the third estrus.

Low-stress cattle handling: An overlooked dimension of management (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

For those of us who are tolerating bawling calves for four or five days in a row, tolerating buller rates of over a half a percent, please listen and see if some of these things might be helpful.

Targeting antimicrobials in food animals (part 2) (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

These proceedings present data related to the question of how long to wait after administering a single injection antimicrobial before applying success/failure criteria. More accurately, we will evaluate success/failure and mortality data based on administering a uniform regimen and then waiting different periods before applying success/failure criteria, and the animal subsequently being eligible for further therapy.

Managing on-farm drug usage (OTC, LDU, ELDU) (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

Supervision of the drug usage on the dairy is a foundation stone for achieving the VCPR and is referenced frequently in the regulatory documents that we are obligated to comply with. In 1996 the Animal Medical Drug Usage Clarification Act (AMDUCA) became the law that regulates extra-label drug usage (ELDU).

Herd health management plans for cow/calf operations (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

Developing herd health programs for cow-calf operations can be time consuming but rewarding for both the producer and the veterinarian if done appropriately. However, many producers think of a herd health program as only a vaccine program. Interestingly, the vaccination schedule and the vaccines that will be used constitute the smallest portion of a true herd health program.

Economic cost of BVD (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

Suckling calves are commonly in contact with the breeding herd during early gestation, prior to the time the bovine fetus develops a competent immune system. As a result, PI suckling calves are considered to be the primary source of BVDV infection in breeding herds causing pregnancy loss, pre-weaning mortality and the induction of PI calves in the next generation.

How do drugs move through the animal (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

In most cases, we administer drugs at a different site than we want to drug to act. Understanding how drugs get to their site of action and how long they stay there is essential to making therapeutic decisions about which drug, what route, how much, how often, and for how long.

Writing treatment protocols, on-farm training, and records-making it a seamless system (Proceedings)

August 1, 2010

The request for a written treatment protocol is made frequently and easily by people that don't have to accomplish the task. This request is made with the best intentions and it is necessary that we accomplish this, but it is not quite as simple as it sounds.
