vaccinations for calf

Help Support CattleToday:



I have a 6 month old calf (Dexter). She is the first cow I have ever owned. The breeder I bought her from gave her Triangle 9 and I have given her Ivermax for worms/parasites. What other vaccinations should I give her, if any? Also, I do give her electrolites every few weeks. Thanks for your help. Kerry

Dexters are still bovines and practices should be same as with most other cattle breeds. Check with your Vet about recommendations on vaccinations for your area--other breeders/ranchers may or may not adher to a total vaccination & de-worming program.

My guess is that the only time electrolytes would be used would be in case of dehydration, not as a routine treatment. As long as calf is drinking adequate clean water, they shouldn't become dehydrated (unless they have bad case of scours).
