Three new beef health-related publications are now available through the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach online store. Iowa State Extension beef veterinarian Grant Dewell authored the publications and said each addresses a specific concern. 

Three new beef health-related publications now available“The one on vitamin A deficiency in beef calves is perhaps the most timely because of upcoming calving season, but the others also offer current and valuable information for beef operations,” Dewell said. “Both ergot poisoning and trichomoniasis topics provide  details on recognizing specific signs and symptoms of those concerns.”

All three new publications are two pages in length in pdf format and can be downloaded at no cost:

Trichomoniasis in Beef Cattle PMR 1012 

Ergot Poisoning in Cattle PMR 1013

Vitamin A Deficiency in Beef Calves PMR 1014

Producers with additional questions about these or any health issues are encouraged to contact their Iowa State Extension beef program specialist or their veterinarian for more information.
