Halogeton Toxicity In Cattle, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Halogeton Toxicity In Cattle, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

“Everyone” knows that halogeton is toxic to sheep, but sometimes we forget that it is also toxic for cattle. If cattle eat enough of it, it will kill them. One autumn incident resulted in the death of over 40 head of cows in a multiple owner grazing herd.


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.


Pinkeye, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Pinkeye, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Pinkeye is the common term for Infectious Bovine Keratoconjunctivitis (IBK). This terminology describes a disease condition of cattle which is infectious in nature and causes an inflammation of the transparent cornea, the sclera (“white”) of the eyeball and the conjunctiva (inside lining membrane) of the lids.


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.


Weaning Calves Successfully, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Weaning Calves Successfully, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

The production loss and death loss of calves at weaning is second only to the losses at calving. Weaning is a very stressful time and bovine respiratory disease (pneumonia, shipping fever, etc.) is a common problem. Coccidiosis and other digestive problems, such as acidosis, (grain overload) are also common.

If you see clippings from ornamental, evergreen shrubs that someone has dumped where cattle, horses, sheep, etc., can eat them, you had better move the plants or the animals. If you don’t, expect some dead animals.


Controlling Coliform Mastitis, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

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.”


Staph Mastitis: Herd Control Program, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Staph Mastitis: Herd Control Program, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Mastitis caused by Staphylococcus aureus is a major problem for some dairy herds. It causes high Somatic Cell Counts (SCC), reduces milk quality, and may cause a loss of milk market. It limits milk production for the herd, reduces efficiency, and continues to spread to other cows.


Drug Residues And Food Safety, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Drug Residues And Food Safety, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Complaints and demands from consumers concerning a product usually occur after an incident involving injury, illness or death. However, this was not the case with the Alar scare with apples and it is not the case with the concern for drug residues in food animal products.


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.


Breeding Soundness Examination Of Rams, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Breeding Soundness Examination Of Rams, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

The objective of a breeding soundness examination (BSE) of rams is to evaluate and classify their potential breeding ability. This process should include evaluation of their physical condition as well as an evaluation of the semen itself. A BSE does not include an evaluation of sex drive or breeding behavior because there are no standardized criteria by which to judge these. Their best evaluation at present will come from observation of the rams breeding behavior after introduction into the ewe flock.


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.


Nutritional Diseases Of Sheep, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

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.

Obstetrics And Lambing Problems, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Obstetrics And Lambing Problems, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Lambing season is a busy time and a critical step toward a productive year. The first rule is for frequent observation of ewes due to lamb. Extra help during this season will usually more than pay for the cost because of extra lambs saved.


Ammonia Toxicity In A Herd Of Beef Cattle, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Ammonia Toxicity In A Herd Of Beef Cattle, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

A Utah producer lost 22 out of 50 head of cows in May, due to ammonia toxicity. He used a liquid fertilizer tank to haul water to the cattle. He had done this for two years previously, and with washing out thoroughly, there had been no problem. But this time some fertilizer was evidently left in, mixed with the water and resulted in the toxicosis.


Beef Quality Assurance Notes, Clell Bagley Jul 1997

Beef Quality Assurance Notes, Clell Bagley

All Current Publications

Most of us have felt that injections given to a calf early in its life would be of little problem by the time it went to slaughter. We were WRONG!!! Colorado State University has provided the data and the pictures to prove it. In fact, 90% of the lesions found at slaughter originated during the cow-calf, stocker or early feeding periods. And, injections given while the calf is young caused greater lesions than those given when it was older. The study followed calves injected at branding or weaning and found a high incidence of lesions and blemishes when they went …

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 need …


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.


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.
