During a recent roundtable discussion on deworming programs for adult beef cows, University of Missouri veterinarian Brian Vander Ley discussed the effects of parasites on the cow’s immune system. Bovine Veterinarian, in cooperation with Merial, recently hosted the roundtable discussion.

In addition to Dr. Vander Ley, our panel included Dr. Arn Anderson, a practitioner from Texas, Dr. Glenn Rogers, a consultant and rancher from Texas, and Dr. Tom Craig, from Texas A&M University. Dr. Mark Hilton, from Purdue University, moderated the program.
