During a recent roundtable discussion on deworming programs for adult beef cows, Texas veterinarian Arn Anderson discussed how parasite control plans, including biosecurity, should be customized for individual cow-calf operations based on their environment and management systems. Bovine Veterinarian, in cooperation with Merial, recently hosted the roundtable discussion. In addition to Dr. Anderson, our panel included Dr. Glenn Rogers, a consultant and rancher from Texas, and Dr. Brian Vander Ley from the University of Missouri and Tom Craig, from Texas A&M University. Purdue University veterinarian Mark Hilton moderated the roundtable.
