Due to the record rainfall I would strongly encourage everyone to vaccinate for Clostridium. Most of you would know this as “black leg”, but it actually contains 6 other strains of the bacteria. Clostridial bacteria form spores so they can live a long time in the dirt. With the unprecedented increase in mud this year cattle are exposed to more Clostridial bacteria than ever before. This vaccine is very cheap and protective. Cows and bulls need one dose a year in a normal year…this year I would recommend two doses. And calves need an initial dose, then a booster dose 3-4 weeks later. The calves should then have another dose before they are one year old. Respiratory vaccines and dewormer
