Could someone please post a sort of schedule of what to do with a cow and calf at certain stages. For example how many months before first worming, castration, weaning, rebreeding ect. Our ranch is at 7000' altitude in NM. Thank you.

Because of the area and elevation I would recommend the old stand-by; Contact a GOOD cattle vet that is familiar with your area for recommendations about vaccination and worming schedules. We use a different schedule and vaccination program in the MO Ozarks then we did in the Pacific NW or the Mojave Desert. So much is area/condition dependent.

I totally agree with visiting with a local vet. But for a "ball-park" schedule. Spring - prior to breeding, worm, delice, vaccinate for IBR PI3, BRSV, BVD, lepto and vibrio if using natural service bull. Calves should be castrated and dehorned shortly after birth (best) or prior to weaning. Calves should receive IBR PI3 BVD BRSV, clostridial & Pasturella prior to weaning (about 6 months of age) with repeat shots in 4 weeks on products needing two shots. Cattle should be wormed in fall. Again, this is for my area - disease vaccinations may vary greatly. Jeanne
