Check calves daily for:
- Runny Nose
- Droopy Ears
- Missing Hair
- Excessive Rubbing
- Bare Spots
- Appetite Loss
- Anything out of the ordinary.
De-Worm: To ensure that calves are properly de-wormed, at the first of every month, rotate using a topical treatment (for lice also) and an oral treatment. This will mean your calves get each one every 60 days.
It is also a good idea to use a deccox product every 90 days, unless it’s in your feed.
Keep a posted paper in your barn with contact numbers for yourself, your parents, and your veterinarian in case of emergencies.
