Keep them clean and dry in a well ventilated area. I don't recommend antibiotic feeding as a preventative, but they are out there and available. I prefer to use antibiotics as indicated, since most of your problems will be caused by viruses. There is also an intranasal vaccine (IBR,PI3) which can be given to calves at 3-5 days of age which will stimulate the immune system and help control disease. Talk to fellow vealers and your vet!<br>V<br>
