Bluetongue In Cattle, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Bluetongue In Cattle, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Bluetongue (BT) is a viral disease that is spread mainly by one specific type of gnat. Other gnats and blood sucking insects may occasionally transmit BT, but they are much less important in its transfer. Cattle are the main reservoir for overwintering of the virus in temperate climates.


Cat Plague - Veterinarian Caution, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Cat Plague - Veterinarian Caution, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Plague has been in the news from several areas in the much from world. The Center for Disease Control has become especially concerned about two aspects of plague (and these concerns affect veterinarians in Utah very directly); first, plague has been increasing in recent years in the western states and second, cats are being recognized more often as being associated with human plague cases.


Improving Reproductive Performance Of The Ewe, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Improving Reproductive Performance Of The Ewe, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

The western range ewe is a tremendously productive animal as evidenced by the excellent reproductive rates that are achieved by some producers, some years. Yet many other factors such as weather, disease and forage availability can drastically reduce their productivity. It is a major management challenge to control or even minimize the effect of these interacting factors. Some of those of greatest priority are listed and briefly discussed.


Health Programs Which Improve The Marketability Of Calves, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Health Programs Which Improve The Marketability Of Calves, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

The “winds of change” have the potential to drastically change the marketing of beef calves in the next few years. Economic pressures may force greater conformity in the way cow-calf producers manage and prepare their calves for market. Those who are slow to conform may be at a disadvantage for marketing.


Vaccinating To Prevent Pneumonia, Clell Bagley, Donald Snyder, Nyle Matthews Jul 1997

Vaccinating To Prevent Pneumonia, Clell Bagley, Donald Snyder, Nyle Matthews

All Current Publications

Bovine Respiratory Disease (BRD) is a major problem for cattle and it continues to cause serious economic losses. Pneumonia is its most serious form. BRD causes increased death losses, higher medication and labor costs, and lost production. It occurs most commonly within a few weeks of weaning and is especially troublesome then. BRD is more serious in calves which are shipped long distances right after weaning and is often referred to as shipping fever.

Understanding Bull Breeding Soundness Exams, Clell Bagley, Craig Burrell Jul 1997

Understanding Bull Breeding Soundness Exams, Clell Bagley, Craig Burrell

All Current Publications

Controversy still exists about Breeding Soundness Examinations (BSE) and what they can and cannot do. At times they are not used because of a lack of understanding of their value while at other times they are used with unrealistic expectations. First, BSE is performed to identify bulls with reduced fertility not just to find those which are sterile. Very few bulls are sterile but a significant percent have reduced fertility.


Clinical Trials With Copper Supplementation, Clell Bagley, Norris Stenquist, Dennis Worwood Jul 1997

Clinical Trials With Copper Supplementation, Clell Bagley, Norris Stenquist, Dennis Worwood

All Current Publications

Copper deficiency has been diagnosed in beef cattle herds in many areas of the intermountain west. Copper supplements are not widely used, even though several products are available. It is difficult to correct a deficiency because too much copper can result in copper toxicity or poisoning. Toxicity is less a hazard with cattle than with sheep, but it is still a problem to guard against. Periodic monitoring of the herd’s copper status is essential for proper supplementation.


Toxic Contaminants In Harvested Forage, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Toxic Contaminants In Harvested Forage, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Harvested forages are vitally important and commonly used for beef production. But contamination can occur which results in reduced forage quality and palatability or may even result in animal illness and death. Outlined below are some of the common problems that should be considered.


Updating Your Herd Health Plan, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Updating Your Herd Health Plan, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Animal health is not sold in a bottle, syringe or sack. It comes as a result of proper management. The increased concentration and movement of cattle and demands for greater production necessitate an improved level of management to maintain cattle health.


Mycotoxins, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Mycotoxins, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Certain metabolites of some fungi (molds) are poisonous (toxic). Fungal poisons have been known for many years, but they were not considered a major factor in animal disease until fairly recently. Because the prefix myco- refers to fungi, these toxins are termed mycotoxins. Penicillin is derived from a fungus and could be termed a mycotoxin, in relation to bacteria which are sensitive to it.

Controlling Coliform Mastitis, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Coliform mastitis is usually considered as an acute disease although some milder forms and even chronic cases do occur. It is caused by the bacterial organism Escherichia coli, hence the name, coliform. Other, related organisms, Enterobacter aerogenes and Klebsiella pneumoniae, are also often called “coliforms.”

Nutritional Diseases Of Sheep, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Nutritional diseases result from a deficiency, an excess or an imbalance of nutrients. They are common but usually produce only sporadic cases of illness or death loss. However, the wrong combination of events can lead to devastating losses.


Preparing Bulls For The Breeding Season, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Preparing Bulls For The Breeding Season, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

With proper care prior to and during the breeding season, cattlemen can increase the breeding capacity of bulls. Breeding soundness evaluations and trichomoniasis testing are tools which can aid a herd manager as he makes critical decisions for next year’s calf crop.


Assisting With Calving, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Assisting With Calving, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Calving season is a busy time of year for cattlemen and it is a critical step toward a productive year. The first rule is frequent observation of those cows due to calve, especially the first calf heifers. This is usually a very busy time of year and some extra help during this season will more than pay for the cost through extra calves saved. Even wives and older children can help a solo producer get some needed sleep. If, they have been taught how to observe, they can tell when a calving cow needs help and if there’s a ...


Copper Deficiency In Utah, Clell Bagley, Norris Stenquist, Dennis Worwood Jul 1997

Copper Deficiency In Utah, Clell Bagley, Norris Stenquist, Dennis Worwood

All Current Publications

Copper deficiency has been diagnosed in a number of Utah cattle herds, yet few producers use copper supplements. Cattle deficient in the element can suffer significant production losses. Producers need to balance both the effects and the costs of copper supplements. Too much copper can cause copper toxicity or poisoning. And adding copper may not be economical if animals are only marginally deficient. Further, the deficiency may occur only on specific feeds or pastures, correcting itself when cattle are moved.


Dealing With Drought And Short Feed Supplies For Beef Cattle, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Dealing With Drought And Short Feed Supplies For Beef Cattle, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Weather patterns greatly impact feed supplies for almost all areas of Utah. Both grazing and harvested feed supplies are usually reduced with drought conditions. The hay QUALITY may actually be improved because of the excellent drying conditions for harvest. Taking good care of hay supplies to protect that quality may allow use of less feed in the winter to achieve acceptable results.


Controlling Internal Parasites In Utah Cattle, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Controlling Internal Parasites In Utah Cattle, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Most cattle harbor some internal parasites (worms) and Utah cattle are no exception. The varied geographic and climatic conditions of Utah allow for tremendous variation in the parasite burden of different cattle herds. The numbers of parasites varies from very few to so numerous as to cause severe weakness and even death of cattle.

Weak Calf Syndrome Or Bvd Fetal Infection, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

A serious health problem of newborn calves was recognized 20 years ago and termed “weak calf syndrome”(WCS). The Bovine Virus Diarrhea (BVD) virus was often isolated from affected calves and from these herds. In recent years, veterinarians have again been looking at the effects of the BVD virus on the fetus.

Breeding Soundness In Rams: How To Do It..., Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

In order for ram breeding soundness examinations to be of maximum value to producers they must be relatively thorough as well as consistent. There is so much normal variation between rams that we cannot afford to add additional variability by lack of observation or inconsistent techniques.
