|weaning health program|
We are weaning calves on Saturday. So, we have been very busy preparing this week...barn and lot cleaned, barn bedded with wood chips, hay in the lot, scales ready to weigh calves, corn and oats available, protein ordered, and vaccines picked up from our veterinarian.
I spoke with our veterinarian earlier this week about our health program for calves at weaning. We discussed in length about our weaning health program. After chatting with Dr Baird, I ordered product to vaccinate our calves. Over the past 30 years, we have developed a great herd health program with our veterinarian. Throughout the year, we vaccinate our cows and calves to prevent disease and sickness.
Our calves will receive four shots when we run them through the cattle chute:
2cc BoviShield Gold
2cc 20/20 Vision 7
4cc Vitamin ADE
Our weaning health program costs $7 per calf. This program will ensure us that our calves will remain healthy.
