Reducing Calf Stress at Weaning

(ST. JOSEPH, MO) September 22, 2010 - Cattle experience a variety of stressors throughout their life that can hinder their overall productivity. Combining good management practices with a solid vaccination program creates a preconditioning plan designed to help calves perform at the best possible levels.
“Cattle producers should have a desire to produce quality calves that perform well in the feed yard and beyond, giving the cattle industry a positive image and producers a marketing advantage,” says Dr. Travis Van Anne, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. professional services veterinarian.
