VIEWPOINT

CHAROLAIS Good Markets Never Last

Good people, good cattle and good customers do.

Heading into spring, there seemed to be lots of coffee shop talk about the downturn in the market. And, for good reason. Calf prices dropped significantly and the domino effect began to impact the commercial cow-calf and registered business. As 2015 came to an end, the seedstock sector moved into spring with a bit of trepidation compared to last year. At more than halfway through the spring sale season, the market has performed much better than expected. The commercial market began to level and the bearish market turned neutral to, in some areas, even bullish. Most of you will have seen the 2015 sale averages appearing in the March issue of the Charolais Journal. During a year of unprecedented demand for cattle and a welcome reprieve from the drought across the country, nearly 5,000 Charolais bulls sold for more than $32.9 million, up more than $1,500 over 2014. More than 1,900 females grossed another $8.3 million for a grand

makers is arguably one of the most relevant challenges we face in the entire beef industry. The Beef Improvement Federation has long been a directional indicator for both registered and commercial cow-calf sectors. Industry thought leaders gather each year to discuss technology breakthroughs as well as proven and traditional systems that continue to be important to good beef production. A primary focus for the 2016 BIF meetings will be on entire food chain production. The opening session, “Opportunities for the Beef Value Chain: Can we become more coordinated and more profitable?” will set the stage for a full two days of meetings. Plans are being finalized for the 2016 AIJCA Junior National Show & Leadership Conference at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds, Springfield, Mo. The week-long AIJCA event is one of the largest, most well attended junior breed functions in America. Each year, space in this column is dedicated

“An underlying fact remains regardless of market cycle. The registered and commercial cow-calf business is still about relationships and customer service.”

total of $41.8 million returned to Charolais seedstock producers across America. Every realist acknowledged it would likely be a long time before the seedstock market performed as well as it did in 2015. However, the economists and analysts still express cautious optimism in the strength of the market moving forward. One of our biggest hurdles, economic struggles globally, remain totally out of our control yet are dramatically impacting our export markets. An underlying fact remains regardless of market cycle. The registered and commercial cow-calf business is still about relationships and customer service. During stressful times in the market, producers with sound relationships, customer service that goes above and beyond, plus solid cattle always seems to weather the storms. Building relationships take time and effort. Summer provides a great place to either visit your customers, take in some junior events or national events such as Beef Improvement Federation that will be held June 14-17, in Manhattan, Kansas. While some might perceive these events as frivolous, the importance of building relationships with the next generation of decision

to reminding the adults of the importance of the summer junior events. From an outsider’s perspective, it’s another cattle show. However, the reality of the value of the event is much, much more. Every youth participant has been willing to put in the hours to learn about the husbandry of the cattle business, most always learning from a Mom or Dad or an older sibling. While some will argue the value of competition, every youngster learns that, no matter how hard we try, we don’t always win. And sometimes even our best efforts aren’t good enough. That’s life. There’s no better place to learn life’s lessons than among your peers. Whether you have children or grandchildren involved in AIJCA or you are simply a Charolais producer, the AIJCA Junior National Show & Leadership Conference is an event to add to your calendar If you can make it to the AIJCA Junior National, the Beef Improvement Federation or the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association summer meetings, these are great opportunities to meet new customers and reconnect with existing customers. Good markets never last. Good people, good cattle and good customers do.

Neonatal Calf Diarrhea (“Scours”) By: Melissa DePriest, DVM Your first calf of the year just hit the ground. This is the beginning of the most exciting, labor intensive, frustrating, and rewarding part of the cow-calf operation. Since there are so many things happening at this critical time, there is one thing which you should develop a plan before the calving season begins—minimizing calf scours.

Dr. Melissa DePriest is a 2013 graduate of the University of Missouri and works for Livestock Veterinary Service in Eldon, Missouri. She is a food animal exclusive practitioner that works primarily with cow-calf and stocker beef operations. Dr. DePriest and Livestock Veterinary Service also provide non-traditional veterinary services such as production record management and nutritional consulting.

Economic impact Neonatal calf diarrhea (AKA: Calf Scours) occurs during the first month of life and is the most common and important disease of beef cattle in this age group. It results in the largest economic losses for nursing calves due to treatment costs, long-term reduction in performance, and death. If unsuccessfully managed, calf diarrhea can cause losses severe enough to bankrupt an operation in a single calving season. Clinical signs Calves with diarrhea have a watery, bloody, and/or discolored stool that many times can be seen matted to the hair around the tail. Energy levels of the calf can vary from normal to unresponsive depending on the severity of the case. Calves that are newly infected may reduce their intake of milk before they become noticeably sick. For this reason, the first clinical sign is often a tight or full udder in cows or heifers with calves, and is easily overlooked during pasture checks. Diarrhea causes the calf ’s body to become acidic. Rapid breathing is the body’s most common response to correct acidosis. For this reason, calves with diarrhea can easily be misdiagnosed with respiratory disease, since they may be panting. Be sure to fully evaluate nursing calves that appear to have difficulty breathing, since respiratory disease is fairly uncommon in this age group of calves. It is important to realize that breathing will normalize in calves with severe diarrhea once electrolytes balance and hydration status normalizes following treatment and recovery. Pathogens involved Bacteria, viruses, protozoa, or intestinal parasites can be involved in neonatal calf diarrhea. These agents are most commonly spread through fecal-oral transfer between animals. It is important to realize that the pathogens that cause diarrhea in calves can also be found in healthy cows and calves. What this means is that these agents do not always cause disease. For diarrhea to develop, there must either be a high pathogen load that a normal immune system cannot combat, or the animal’s immune system has been compromised. Regardless of the pathogen(s) involved, most calves recover from diarrhea uneventfully following early intervention with supportive care. For this reason, don’t get too wrapped up in determining the pathogen responsible for an individual case. There are times when knowing the involved pathogens can be important—for example, if there is a severe outbreak that doesn’t respond to supportive care or if people that handle the sick calves develop gastrointestinal signs themselves. A fecal culture, flotation, and/ or virus identification can be performed to determine the pathogen(s) involved. Keep in mind, diarrhea can cause severe damage to the lining of the intestine and colon and the pathogen initially causing disease may no longer be present in the feces by the time a sample is taken. Many times, more than one pathogen can be found in a fecal sample and it is difficult to determine which is primary or secondary. continued on page 78 CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

Directors By Area

Hi, my name is Hadley Schotte and I’m a senior in the graduating class of 2016 at Marysville High School in Marysville, KS. I have been involved in the Charolais breed, and participating in Junior National each year since the 2006 Junior National in Springfield, MO. I am involved in many contests beyond showing cattle that include speech, cookoff, team fitting, quiz bowl, showmanship, sales talk, and others. I thoroughly enjoy each contest I participate in but my favorite would have to be showmanship, as it is a contest that I hold near and dear to my heart. Even though when I first started showing it was a dreadful idea that my parents forced me to partake in or else I wouldn’t be allowed to show cattle. Looking back, it was one of the greatest lessons I ever learned from my time of showing. It not only allows a junior to perfect his or her skills of exhibiting animals but also aids them in many other aspects of life such as communication and self-confidence.

feet” and quickly solving problems will allow someone to be much more valued all around. Whether this is put to use in organizations such as the AIJCA, a career path, church groups, or other functions quickly managing tasks in a correct way is an outstanding opportunity to build the trust and respect of others. Self-confidence is a trait that is often overlooked by many of those that get discouraged after being defeated. I’m not here to go on a “believe in yourself” soap box speech, but I do recognize that presenting yourself in such a manner that others know you respect yourself is vital to achieving any goal in life. Now this isn’t something that can be learned from a textbook or gained by watching a Youtube video, selfconfidence takes time to learn. For some of those that are slightly more timid, it can take even more time. The best way to gain this quality is to talk to people. Get to know people of different backgrounds and new ways of thinking. Junior

“ Knowing how to present cattle, present yourself and represent what you stand for speaks volumes... ” Obviously the main purpose of showmanship is to present an animal to the highest quality possible. An experienced man in the cattle industry once told me that it is just as easy to make an “okay” animal look great as it is to make a great animal look “okay” solely based on the showmanship performance. This is nothing but the most profound truth I have ever heard spoken. With a little practice anyone can produce the best showmanship animal to see a showring that year. Sometimes the phrase “practice makes perfect” becomes redundant to exhibitors and some even think that there is a shortcut to achieving success in a showmanship contest but practice and a little bit of luck is the only way to win this buckle. Communication is the next largest quality someone can gain from participating in the showmanship contest. The best judges make it a point to talk to each exhibitor while they are showing. Many times the questions asked are very basic facts about cattle or the industry as a whole, while other times judges put more emphasis on the questions and they can be quite difficult. Learning how to answer these questions effectively and in a timely manner is key to aiding your placing in the ring but as well as life in general. “Thinking on your 32  

A P R I L 2016

National is an amazing opportunity to accomplish this. I’ll be honest and up front when I say that not everyone will hold the same opinion of you. Some will become lifelong friends while others will grow to become your biggest rivals. Both sides of the spectrum give you the knowledge to gain self-confidence and to hold yourself to higher standards. Showmanship is a quality that will be useful to all for many years to come. Not only in the wide variety of contests at Junior National but in all aspects of life. Knowing how to present cattle, present yourself and represent what you stand for speaks volumes to how a person was raised. I have been fortunate to be raised in the Charolais industry, just as many of you reading this have as well. The cattle bring great traits to the beef industry but the people are what I value the most. The people of the Charolais breed are what make me cherish the time I have been fortunate to spend showing cattle. In this issue of the Charolais Journal, you will find all of the entry information for the 2016 AIJCA Junior National in Springfield, MO. I am excited to return ten years later to the place where it all started for me. I am even more excited to witness new members starting their own journey in our great association this summer.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) should be given only by subcutaneous injection in front of the shoulder at the recommended dosage level of 1 mg eprinomectin per kg body weight (1 mL per 110 lb body weight). WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings Animals intended for human consumption must not be slaughtered within 48 days of the last treatment. This drug product is not approved for use in female dairy cattle 20 months of age or older, including dry dairy cows. Use in these cattle may cause drug residues in milk and/or in calves born to these cows. A withdrawal period has not been established for pre-ruminating calves. Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Animal Safety Warnings and Precautions The product is likely to cause tissue damage at the site of injection, including possible granulomas and necrosis. These reactions have disappeared without treatment. Local tissue reaction may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter. Observe cattle for injection site reactions. If injection site reactions are suspected, consult your veterinarian. This product is not for intravenous or intramuscular use. Protect product from light. LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) has been developed specifically for use in cattle only. This product should not be used in other animal species. When to Treat Cattle with Grubs LONGRANGE effectively controls all stages of cattle grubs. However, proper timing of treatment is important. For the most effective results, cattle should be treated as soon as possible after the end of the heel fly (warble fly) season. Environmental Hazards Not for use in cattle managed in feedlots or under intensive rotational grazing because the environmental impact has not been evaluated for these scenarios. Other Warnings: Underdosing and/or subtherapeutic concentrations of extended-release anthelmintic products may encourage the development of parasite resistance. It is recommended that parasite resistance be monitored following the use of any anthelmintic with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test program. TARGET ANIMAL SAFETY Clinical studies have demonstrated the wide margin of safety of LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin). Overdosing at 3 to 5 times the recommended dose resulted in a statistically significant reduction in average weight gain when compared to the group tested at label dose. Treatment-related lesions observed in most cattle administered the product included swelling, hyperemia, or necrosis in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. The administration of LONGRANGE at 3 times the recommended therapeutic dose had no adverse reproductive effects on beef cows at all stages of breeding or pregnancy or on their calves. Not for use in bulls, as reproductive safety testing has not been conducted in males intended for breeding or actively breeding. Not for use in calves less than 3 months of age because safety testing has not been conducted in calves less than 3 months of age. STORAGE Store at 77° F (25° C) with excursions between 59° and 86° F (15° and 30° C). Protect from light. Made in Canada. Manufactured for Merial, Inc., Duluth, GA, USA.

THE WEIGHT GAIN IS REAL. Go ahead, blink.

A deworming with LONGRANGE® (eprinomectin) can help keep parasites from eating into your profits. If you used a conventional dewormer like CYDECTIN® (moxidectin), SAFE-GUARD® (fenbendazole) or in combination, your cattle are probably already reinfected with parasites. That’s because conventional dewormers only last 14 to 42 days and SAFE-GUARD has no persistent effect. Only LONGRANGE delivers up to 150 days of parasite control in a single treatment.1,2 When you look at the benefits of season-long parasite control with LONGRANGE – you’ll see you have a lot to gain.

Use LONGRANGE on your cow/calf operation and see the difference for yourself.

AI ADVANCES

IN THE BEEF INDUSTRY By Heather Smith Thomas The first use of artificial insemination was accomplished by Arab Sheiks who wanted to utilize bloodlines of the horses belonging to their tribal enemies. They would sneak up to the other tribe’s herd at night with a mare in heat and secretly would be collected, extended with a media, placed in glass collect semen from the desired stallion into a leather pouch and ampoules and kept in an ice bath. The extended semen would take it back to their own camp to inseminate a prize mare. be drawn up into a pipette to breed the cow. That semen would The earliest documented use of artificial insemination last 2 to 5 days, depending on the fertility of the bull,” he says. was in 1780 when Italian physiologist Spallanzani obtained The advent of frozen semen revolutionized this process. puppies. A few other reports of successful AI breedings Beef AI got started in the early 1950’s along with performance occurred in the 19th century, but it wasn’t until about 1900 testing of certain bulls. Some progeny testing was done in the that extensive studies with farm animals began in Russia. A late1960’s and early 1970’s by the Beef scientist named Ivanov developed the Improvement Federation. Importations technique for mares, and by 1930 he of some European breeds were only and his associates were doing artificial possible by using frozen semen and AI, The earliest documented insemination of cattle and sheep. due to restrictions on importing live Artificial insemination in the animals. U.S. was first used in dairy herds in use of artificial insemination Today the AI process is easier with the 1930’s with cooled fresh liquid use of synchronization protocols. All semen—transported in glass vials kept was in 1780 when Italian the cows in the herd can be bred on the cool in ice-water. Most AI studs were same day instead of having to watch local, because fresh semen couldn’t them for signs of heat. Conception physiologist Spallanzani be transported very far. By 1938, rates have also improved. Being able organized AI was being done in U.S. to ultrasound the cow’s ovaries and dairy herds and a few beef herds. At obtained puppies. determine the time of ovulation helped first they were using extended and researchers figure out the best time cooled liquid semen, packaged in glass to inseminate cattle and obtain better ampoules (vials). Carl Rugg (Bovine conception rate. Elite, LLC in Texas) says that in early years the process was Rugg did his masters degree in reproductive physiology all done by veterinarians, and then later by specialized AI at Colorado State University. “This was about the time we technicians who were employees of AI cooperatives. moved to the next phase, packaging and freezing the semen “The distributor would bring the veterinarian 3 or 4 bulls, in French straws. We continue to use this technique and and in those early years it was mainly dairy bulls. The semen CHAROLAIS JOURNAL

packaging method, which allows the semen to freeze and thaw with higher recovery and ultimately better conception with frozen semen. We’ve come a long way in the packaging and handling process.” He says one of the biggest advances has been the use of invitro fertilization of embryos. “The producer may have a great cow that’s getting old and she’s not producing as many embryos as desired. So we can aspirate ova from her ovaries and fertilize them in-vitro,” he says. In addition to that, there has also been an increase in the production and use of sexed semen in beef cattle. “The major bull studs such as ABS Global, Select Sires and Accelerated Genetics first used dairy bulls for sexed semen. A dairy bull, in general, has very high fertility and high quality of semen that can be more readily processed and sorted for sexed semen. The dairy breeds, in general, are very fertile,” says Rugg. Dairymen started using sexed semen, partly because of high fertility that allowed this, and partly because dairies do a lot more AI breeding than do beef producers. “Well over 70% of dairy cows are bred AI, while we might have 10% in the beef industry. It was logical for sexed semen to be used first in the dairy business. They are turning over more generations, faster, wanting heifers to milk, rather than bull calves,” he explains. “A few years ago we started seeing some placement of beef bulls for sexed semen production. Each of the major bull studs has a handful of beef bulls that they offer for sexed semen availability. These are bulls with high fertility and high quality semen that can make it through the sex-sorting process. Not every bull’s semen can do this. We’ve seen several breeds such

as Angus, Simmental, Hereford and Charolais being offered for sexed semen,” says Rugg. There are also a few bulls chosen for sexed semen in the club calf business. “Increasing use of sexed semen is a slow trend because the cost is still high—at least double the price of conventional products, and it’s even higher for some of the bulls that are in great demand,” he says. The process is expensive, and you only get a fraction of the semen that would be obtained conventionally. “The company that came up with the sexing technology has all the patents on that process. They contracted those patents to other firms, so there are several large firms like American Breeders Service, Accelerated Genetics and Genex that can process it with their own machines. They pay a royalty to use the technology,” he says. “Sexed semen is now fairly prevalent throughout the U.S. and we have facilities to process sexed semen in many locations. Sexing Technologies owns all the patents, and they provide all the media and products to be used for that purpose, as well as the training,” says Rugg. Sexed semen has become more widely used across the country, especially in the dairy business. “More beef semen is being sexed today, however, than it was earlier, and has perhaps doubled in the past 5 years,” says Rugg. “The cost of producing the straw of sexed semen might be $25 to $40 so the bull studs are pricing the semen fairly high to cover their expense of processing. The breeders who want to use it are paying a premium for it. They might also be using some in-vitro fertilization, which adds to the expense. They are taking these high-end steps, however, to produce a high-end

“We will continue looking for bulls in the top 20% of the various breeds—bulls that can provide us with the next generation of better cattle. We’ve really narrowed down the scope; most breeders are looking for the top bulls rather than a wide range of bulls” product. TransOva Genetics does a lot of IVF work. They can utilize not just fresh semen, but can take a straw of semen and sex sort it,” he says. Darrel DeGrofft, DVM,an embryologist in Loveland, Colorado (Colorado Genetics, Inc.) says most beef cattle producers who utilize AI are using conventional semen rather than sexed semen, but the use of sexed semen is slowing increasing. “There are currently some improvements being made in sexed semen. Some of the companies are coming out with products that will have more sperm cells per straw. I have been told that later this year a new product will be available. We do use some sexed semen occasionally in our reproductive business. It’s best if used in virgin heifers, versus cows, due to the smaller size of the reproductive tract,” he says. “We still see a lot of general AI,” says Rugg. “Over this past year with the drought situation in southern states, breeders who were able to keep females have trimmed down their herds— keeping just the best cows—and they will be using plenty of AI this year. Producers who want to stay current with the rest of the industry use AI as part of their program. We continue to see an increase in the use of AI for production purposes and to build back herds, and keep those generations moving, with progress in genetics. You can fall behind pretty easily if you don’t,” he says. “We are also seeing more exported semen. With the world market, a lot of the bulls that are being collected are not just for domestic use anymore. Bovine Elite exports a lot of frozen semen and embryos to Central and South America. We continue to see use of high-end bulls in Central and South America, South Africa, Australia and other areas of the world. The embryos are contracted as needed. We don’t have an inventory of embryos; these are custom produced for the client,” he explains.

We’ve really narrowed down the scope; most breeders are looking for the top bulls rather than a wide range of bulls,” he says. The breed associations are now able to identify DNA on specific bulls, and are using those tools to move the superior bulls to the front faster. “They are able to identify those as the bulls we want semen from, and can bring them in young—to get more use of them. You don’t have to be raising 20 bulls to get the one exceptionally good one; we can now narrow that scope a lot,” says Rugg. Almost all the AI and ET companies in the U.S. and Canada use synchronization protocols. “Every bull stud’s semen catalog has these protocols listed at the back of their catalog—a page for heifers and a page for cows,” DeGrofft says. “We can use various programs for heifers or for cows, though some people still use simple heat detection for 21 days and breed accordingly. With timed AI (TAI), utilizing superior bull genetics, the cattle are bred 9 or 10 days after you place the CIDR, resulting in more calves born in the early part of the calving season, which for most producers is economically valuable,” he explains. Some people ask if all the calves will be born in just a few days if the cows are bred in a synchronized program and all bred on the same day. “We know that even though they are all bred the same day (to calve about 9 months later) calving will be spread over 30 days; a few cows will calve as much as two weeks early while others will calve two weeks late. The majority of those AI calves will come within a 10 day window, but they do not all calve on a Tuesday nine months from the AI date!”

Pick of DeBruycker Herd

87 H Typical DeBruycker Female

This annual consignment has become a tradition. If you look at all the selections that have taken place since the very first year, you will find many of the cattle that are raised, promoted, and marketed in the Charolais breed, derived from these “Picks”.  Obviously you can’t go wrong when you are picking from the largest Charolais herd in the world!  And many say one of the best in the breed.  Most years it’s the high selling lot, but still one of the best bargains in the breed when you compare the results breeders get from this purchase.  Double-H has made several picks, Larry Lehman and Bradley Bracewell, Camp Cooley, Bill & Raye Arlitt, Rick & Cindy Evans, Heath Hyde and Bill Morley (2-picks), and many others will tell you it is one of the most important additions to their herd and one of the best experiences in making the selection.  They will exclude any of their present donor cows.  If you select a cow with a bull calf at side, they will retain 3/4 interest and full possession of the bull calf.  You will get a full 1/4 semen interest.  They will take the cow to their transplant center, if you choose, and you can take possession of the cow in the fall after calf is weaned.  You get full interest and possession of any heifer calf pair.  Selection must be made by July 31, 2016.

Risk Factors The following is a list of risk factors that increase the likelihood of neonatal calf diarrhea: 1) Time born during the calving season. Calves born at the beginning of the calving season have very low risk of diarrhea, while those born later have more risk due to the accumulated pathogen load throughout the season. 2) Poor colostrum quality in cows/heifers. Antibodies against calf diarrhea are transferred through the colostrum and help prevent calves from getting sick. Colostrum quality improves with the age of the cow. Since heifers produce fewer antibodies in their colostrum than older cows, their calves are more susceptible to disease. 3) Environmental stress. A difficult calving, excessive heat or cold, and moisture create physical stress that can reduce the body’s ability to fight disease. 4) Population density. Having a large number of cattle calve in a small space will increase your risk of calf diarrhea. While this is important to consider, large groups of cow-calf pairs born in a short period of time have less risk than groups with calves of all ages. Treatment Supportive care/fluid therapy Maintaining hydration is the most important part of treating calves with diarrhea. Oral fluids containing electrolytes should be given at the first signs of diarrhea. It is best to allow the calf to suckle from a bottle if it is able to do so. Giving fluids via intubation or “tubing the calf ” delays stomach emptying, which slows absorption. So, be patient and allow the calf to suckle if it can. Tips for oral fluid therapy: • Allow the calf to continue nursing the cow/heifer. Work 78  

A P R I L 2016

with your veterinarian to determine if the electrolyte product you are using has enough calories to maintain energy balance in the calf. Products that do not have enough calories will need to be used in addition to milk replacer, milking the cow/heifer, or allowing the calf to nurse. • Avoid giving electrolyte solutions at the same time as a milk feeding. This can affect milk clotting in the stomach, which impacts nutrient absorption. • Do not mix electrolytes into the milk. This changes the concentration of the mixture and can actually increase dehydration in calves. • Disinfect bottles, nipples, and tubes between treating animals. The agents causing calf diarrhea can be spread between animals through nasal secretions and saliva. If a calf is unable to stand and/or unresponsive, intravenous (IV) fluid therapy can be used to regain hydration and electrolyte balance. Antibiotic therapy The environment in the digestive tract of cattle allows bacteria to quickly and easily develop resistance to antibiotics. This can lead to antibiotic resistant strains in your herd. For this reason, antibiotic therapy is not recommended unless there are signs of systemic illness (fever, decreased appetite, weakness/lack of energy). Consult with your veterinarian about which antibiotics are appropriate to use in calves with diarrhea. It may also be beneficial to perform a culture and antibiotic sensitivity test to determine what is effective in the face of an outbreak or with perceived treatment failure. Records Maintain treatment records during an outbreak to help investigate the cause of disease. This may help identify which animals are at the most risk in your herd, so that you can evaluate your problem areas and focus on preventing disease in that group in the future. Good records during an outbreak can also help you monitor and analyze changes in protocols to determine what works best for your operation. Here are a few things to keep track of: 1) Identify the individual calf affected 2) Age of calf 3) Identify the dam of the calf 4) Age of the dam 5) Treatment given 6) Location of cow-calf pair Biocontainment Since the pathogens causing diarrhea in neonatal calves are already present in the population (endemic), the term biocontainment is used rather than biosecurity when discussing

CHAROLAIS JOURNAL


methods to control this disease. Biocontainment actions against calf diarrhea include: 1) Managing colostrum to improve passive immunity in calves. This can be challenging in a beef herd. The antibodies that the calf receives from this type of immunity naturally decrease over time. However, if colostrum quality is measured and monitored, and there is a bank of high quality colostrum available to give calves as needed, you can ensure that each calf receives adequate antibodies to protect them from disease. To ensure successful transfer of antibodies, colostrum should be consumed within the first 4 hours of life. It is also important to recognize that manure on the udder and teats can easily transfer pathogens to nursing calves. There are commercially available vaccines that can be given during the third trimester of gestation to increase the level of specific antibodies in the milk. Work with your veterinarian to determine which vaccines are the most useful in your area. 2) Preventing effective contacts. Effective contact is any kind of contact that results in transmission of disease from an infectious individual to a susceptible individual. Effective contacts may be prevented in three ways: by separating animals, reducing the level of exposure with sanitation or dilution over space, or minimizing contact time. Keep in mind that pathogens involved in calf diarrhea are already in the environment and contact between calves does not always result in transfer of disease. Only calves that have exposure to a high pathogen load and/or have a compromised immune system will become clinically ill. A diarrhea outbreak can be prevented by reducing the risk of individual cases of calf diarrhea and the exposure of individual cases to other calves. By preventing effective contacts, calf diarrhea can be greatly reduced during the calving season with a systematic pasture rotation. This method is called the Sandhills Calving System and prevents effective contacts by reducing opportunities for exposure and transmission. After the first 14 days of the calving season, cows that have not calved are moved to a fresh new pasture and the cow-calf pairs are left in the pasture in which they originally calved. Following this first movement, cows that have not calved are moved every 7 days to new pastures, while the pairs continue to remain in their calving pasture. The Sandhills Calving System segregates calves by age to reduce transmission of pathogens to the youngest, most susceptible population of calves. By moving pregnant cows to clean pastures prior to calving, the pathogen load is minimized in the environment. In addition, contact time between calves and the majority of the cow herd are minimized. In my professional opinion, I prefer that all cows calve in a pasture unless assistance is needed. If a maternity barn or calving facilities are used to assist with a calving event, calves should be removed from these facilities as soon as possible (within a few hours) to minimize pathogen exposure. Clean the calving area following each calving, taking care to remove all used bedding and manure. While the Sandhills Calving System is a simple method to follow, it does take time to plan pasture rotations prior to calving for it to work effectively. Depending on how long the calving season lasts, this method can require several pastures. It is also

critical to have fences and water sources in place prior to the beginning of the calving season. It may take more effort to feed cattle and create plans for this system than what you may be accustomed to during the calving season. The added effort at the beginning of the season, however, will greatly reduce your labor input later in the season, since you won’t be chasing around sick calves in the pasture. Not only does this cut down on your treatment costs and losses from poor gain in sick calves, more importantly, it prevents cattle from getting sick in the first place. As an animal steward, you should feel compelled to keep animals healthy. How many calves do you need to prevent from getting diarrhea to change your management system? There is always talk about morbidity and mortality rates to aim for when seeking optimum profitability. I encourage you to believe that reducing the risk of calf diarrhea in your herd is worth a lot in the industry, especially concerning animal welfare, regardless of what percentage of your cattle can be sick for you to remain profitable. Avoid zoonosis The term for the ability of pathogens to transfer from animals to people is “Zoonosis.” Several organisms that cause diarrhea in calves can be transferred to people. Keep this in mind when working with sick calves. In addition, let your medical professional know that you have exposure to livestock if you experience gastrointestinal upset, especially in the face of a scours outbreak with your calves. Here are a few steps you can take to prevent zoonosis from calves with diarrhea: • Leave outer layer of clothing at the farm or in the contaminated area • Wear disposable gloves • Wash hands • Protect children from contaminated areas. Children are more likely than adults to become severely ill following exposure to pathogens causing diarrhea in calves. Make sure they are protected if they work with sick calves and wash up when they get inside. Summary We can all agree that calf diarrhea can really put a damper on the calving season. I have explained some causes and treatments and also discussed ways to reduce exposure and prevent an outbreak in your herd. Now is the time to put together a plan that works best for your operation. © References Barrington GM, et al. Biosecurity for neonatal gastrointestinal diseases. Vet Clin Food Anim 2002;18:7-34.
