Out of balance = sick calf
The most recent issue of the calf management newsletter is now posted online at
The key points
- Too many challenges and too little immunity.
- The futile search for "THE" cause of sickness (scours, pneumonia)
- A team approach is most likely to succeed.
- Links to resources on boosting immunity and suppressing pathogen expossure.
Just a note on the prolonged lack of posting at the blog.
Our veterinary clinic closed in mid-March to everyone but the practicing DVM's. That isolated me from all my hard copy resources AND my computer. It's possible but complicated to get reliable remote access - which I now have.
In addition, after two surgeries for oral cancer (Dec. and Jan.) I had 30 sessions of radiation therapy in starting in mid-March. The doctors now say that I am cancer free but sure was tiring.
My energy is back and I hope to post on the blog regularly.
If you have friends that read my blog, please let that know that Calves with Sam is up and running again.
