Researchers at UC-Davis have developed a handy, easy-to-use diagnostic tool to streamline monitoring of calves for respiratory disease, so they can be detected and cared for early in the disease process.
One hundred years ago, researchers at what is now Colorado State University began investigating a disease affecting cattle on the state's high-mountain ranches. The disease, which caused significant death loss, p
Moisture came to about two-thirds of the country last week, dropping heavy precipitation from the southern Great Plains northeastward into the northern Appalachians. But many areas remains in significant drought.
Weather plays a key role in feedyard health and performance, seasonally and from year-to-year. A significant portion of that variation, however, relates to changes in management and marketing trends, which are influenc
Scientists at Texas A&M University are testing new technologies at a feedlot in the Texas Panhandle to find ways to reduce the use of antibiotics in livestock and provide consumers with a healthy meat supply.
The first few days an animal spends in a feedlot are critical to their health and overall performance through the feeding period. Receiving protocols vary though, based on feedyard location, time of year and source and
n a recent feedlot trial conducted by Advanced Animal Diagnostics (AAD), the use of a new chute-side blood test (QScout® BLD) demonstrated that a feedyard in Nebraska could reduce antibiotic use 87% by selectively tr
