Description

In an effort to better define the causes and costs of respiratory disease in suckling beef calves, we need your help! Faculty members at the ISU College of Veterinary Medicine are looking for calves that are showing evidence of respiratory disease prior to weaning. We would like to work with you and your local veterinarian to collect a set of samples from the sick calf and two normal herdmates. We are sampling both sick and normal calves to be able to tell the difference in pathogen load between the two groups.
