Brian Miller, a veterinarian with Merck Animal Health, will focus on management practices to help ensure more calves are successfully immunized. Many producers assume that if they vaccinate animals against a particular disease, that they are fully protected following vaccination. However, there are several factors that influence whether an animal has the ability to respond to the vaccine, as well as the level of protection afforded from vaccination. This presentation will focus on management practices that optimize immune responses in newborn calves before, at and following calving. Included will be a discussion on scour vaccines administered to late-gestation replacement heifers and dry cows, and intranasal vaccines administered to newborn calves.
