Our vet says he wishes everyone would do it. The calves get some immunity from the dam & vaccination only costs about $2.00.

I vaccinate annually and worm every 6 months. My neighbor does not and he is always having cows or calves come down with the snots, or someother god-awful thing. None of my cows have ever had any problems, and I attribute that to their 1. isolation 2. Good nutrition 3. the annual vaccinations. ;-) :cboy:
