Cattle Preventative Recommendations – Spring
- Non pregnant cows Express FP 5 VL5 (BI) or Preg guard Gold FP 10 (P)
- Calves Bovishield Gold 5 (P) or Pyramid 5 + Presponse SQ (BI) can use just plain Pyramid 5 if can’t find it with Presponse
- Cows & Calves Caliber 7(BI) or Ultra Choice 7(P)
- Deworm cows and calves with Injectable Dectomaxx (P) or Cydectin (BI) so popular hard to get right now. Any evidence of Lice need a back pour.
- SE injection (white muscle) on calves as needed due to selenium deficiency, usually the biggest thriftiest calves.
- Multimin 90 Injectable on any calves/cows showing sings of copper deficiency.
Free Choice Mineral:
- Multiple kinds ie trace, salt, copper, hi mag, etc. Some cows won’t eat mixed mineral if they are only needing salt or vice versa.
- Semen and Trich Test Bulls
High Altitude Disease:
- PAP replacement heifers, new bulls if in high country
