In the newsletter, Sam Leadley, calf and heifer management specialist with Attica (N.Y.) Veterinary Associates, looks at the subject of salmonella. He makes the following points:

  • Prevention works! Maximize resistance through excellent colostrum management and well-fed calves.
  • Prevention works! Minimize exposure to salmonella at birth, in feed, housing and care givers.
  • Consistent care encourages good gut motility and discourages salmonella attachment in the gut.
  • All-in, all-out housing helps break infection cycles.
