The Relationship of Bovine Respiratory Disease & Carcass Ultrasound Measures
Bovine respiratory disease has been identified as an economically relevant trait which lacks selection tools to reduce post-weaning incidence. The lack of sufficient field morbidity data has been a major obstruction to development of tools for genetic improvement. FULL STORY »

Evaluation Of Fixed Sources Of Variation & Estimation Of Genetic Parameters For Incidence Of BRD In Preweaned Calves & Feedlot Cattle
The primary objective of this study was to estimate variance components and heritability of bovine respiratory disease (BRD) incidence in beef calves before weaning and during the finishing phase. FULL STORY »
Study Shows Cost-Effectiveness Of Resflor® In Feedlot Cattle Treated For Undifferentiated Fever Related To BRD
In a Canadian field trial in feedlot cattle recently published in Veterinary Therapeutics, it was demonstrated that treatment of undifferentiated fever related to BRD with RESFLOR® was associated with a lower mortality, resulting in higher economic benefit as compared to treatment with tulathromycin or ceftiofur.

Health Guarantees For Feeder Cattle
Many times when cattle change hands there is some expectation of a certification of health regarding the purchased cattle. However, these “guarantees” of health are somewhat ill defined. One of the major questions about health guarantees relates to the sales of feeder cattle. FULL STORY »
