Video offers calf disease prevention tips


As part of its ongoing commitment to newborn calf health and shared knowledge, ImmuCell recently added an informational video to the Immediate Immunity YouTube channel. Available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eDH09yl1idk, the video offers advice and experiences from a veterinarian's viewpoint.

Steve Hayes, DVM and owner of Day 1 Technology, is featured in the piece titled "A Veterinarian's Perspective: Achieving Immediate Immunity." Hayes offers advice applicable to both beef and dairy producers on the importance of protecting newborn calves from pathogens.

"In the first two weeks of life, scours is a common problem," he says, adding that calves must be protected from E. coli, mycoplasma, coronavirus, rotavirus and cryptosporidium.

To promote early calf health and long-term productivity, Hayes encourages producers to complement colostrum feeding programs with a concentrated and targeted antibody product that protects against coronavirus and E. coli. In the video, he explains that producers should utilize products that can be fed without delaying colostrum feeding.

Bobbi (Kunde) Brockmann, director of sales and marketing with ImmuCell, says the video adds to the expertise available on the Immediate Immunity YouTube page.

"The Immediate Immunity YouTube channel continues to be a valuable resource for all cattle producers," she says. "It's vital to the beef and dairy industries that producers and veterinarians share their experiences and learn from one another about newborn calf management. The actions we take on day one play a pivotal role in the growth and productivity of the calf's future."

The Immediate Immunity YouTube channel is a resource center on newborn calf health. View videos on the Immediate Immunity YouTube channel by visiting www.youtube.com/ImmediateImmunity.
