Herd Health Care

Losses caused by disease represent a major obstacle to the profitability of many cow/calf beef and dairy operations. Disease results in animal death, failure or decreased efficiency in reproduction, and decreases in growth and productivity. A comprehensive herd health program recognizes vaccination and deworming as an important tool, but a cureall. Effective programs integrate medicine and management to prevent disease.

Vaccination Programs

“Prevention is Better than Cure” – the one of the best preventive measure is to prevent disease occurrence and spread. Vaccines provide a pre-emptive protection against a disease for the herd.

 

Deworming Programs

Worms, considered as an internal parasite, slowly parasitizes the system of animal. This chronic phenomena renders the animal against its nutritional intake and slowly destroys its system. A strategic deworming program for cattle can be considered to a high profitable index for the farm.
