Richard, the best thing to do is to check out the label on the virashield. I've used virashield before, and I think it's pregnant safe. Since your in Louisiana, you'd probably be on the same type program as me: Spring and fall vaccinate with combo vaccine, worm with ivomec plus - and black leg the calves in the spring.

A serious word of caution......

You had make darn sure that you don't worm them until Warble(Heel Fly) season is over or you risk giving your cattle bottle throat? or even Paralisys and a slow death from killing the larvae in their spinal cord.

I killed two of my yearlings last year......very hard lesson.

Call a large animal vet and get on a program.
