Recommended Vaccination Schedules for a Comprehensive Dairy Herd Health Program
Feeding practices, management styles, health care programs, and facilities vary greatly among dairy operations. Because of this, the degrees of stress, the patterns of disease resistance, and pathogen exposure are variable and unique to each operation. Consequently, there is no one size fits all vaccination program, but each program must be tailor-made to fit the individual needs of each dairy.

Disease Protection of Baby Calves
A successful cow/calf operation requires that a large percentage of cows wean a live calf every year. A live calf at weaning time requires survival of the offspring from birth to weaning. USDA beef researchers and rancher surveys report that diseases, including scours and pneumonia, were the second leading cause of baby calf deaths. Difficulty at birth was the single largest source of death loss.

Foot Rot in Grazing Cattle
oot rot is a subacute or acute necrotic (decaying) infectious disease of cattle, causing swelling and lameness in one or more feet. The disease can become chronic, with a poorer prognosis for recovery if treatment is delayed, which results in deeper structures of the toe becoming affected. Weight gain is significantly reduced when grazing cattle contract the disease. In one three-year study, Brazle (1993) reported that affected steers gained 2.3 lbs. per day, while steers not affected gained 2.76 lbs. per day.

People and animals are usually infected with this bacteria from drinking or swimming in contaminated water or through contact with fluids or tissues of infected animals. Recently in the U.S., there has been a significant increase in the number of cases of canine leptospirosis caused by uncommon serovars (types) of Leptospira.

inkeye is a highly contagious infectious bacterial disease of the eye of cattle caused by Moraxella bovis (M. bovis). It has a worldwide distribution. Although pinkeye is non-fatal, it has a marked economic impact on the cattle industry. Costs resulting from decreased weight gain, milk production, and treatment were estimated to be $150 million in the U.S. alone, according to a 1993 study.
