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
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.
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
