Clinical Rotations - Clinical Investigations of Fresh Cow and Calf Problems
Herd Based Approaches to Metabolic and Infectious Diseases
- Evaluate calf and peri-parturient cow management practices
- Develop an investigation strategy for ambiguous herd problems
- Collect samples and interpret herd-based diagnostic tests for infectious disease including hygiene and housing
- Assess nutritional status of herds via nutritional management, actual feed intake, particle length determinations, etc.
Problem herds referred to the School of Veterinary Medicine will be investigated during this course. Many herd problems are presented as fresh cow problems that could be either metabolic, infectious, or both. Calf herd problems are usually the result of a combination of infectious agents and environmental stresses. This course will provide skills and experience to deal with complex problems.
