Bayer Animal Health announces the availability of the free Breathe Easy Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) Detection & Treatment Kit.

The Breathe Easy BRD Detection & Treatment Kit is a proven, no-cost solution for regular disease screening and treatment, and protects dairy producers’ most valuable investments – dairy replacement heifers.

The Breathe Easy Kit was developed, in partnership with Sheila McGuirk, professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, and Bayer HealthCare, LLC, Animal Health Division, and is designed to assess calf respiratory health using five clinical signs, including: nasal discharge, eye appearance, ear position, cough and rectal temperature. Using a severity score, two or more signs of respiratory disease suggest that the dairy calf or heifer should be treated for respiratory disease. The scoring sheet from the Breathe Easy BRD Detection & Treatment Kit can be downloaded free by following the link below.
