Vaccination Program for Beef Calves (2001 - Clell Bagley)

Clell V. Bagley DVM, Utah State University


Vaccines are an important tool to use in herd health programs for the protection of animal health. However, vaccines do not prevent all disease by themselves, and should be used in conjunction with good management practices. The timing of vaccination and selection of product are important considerations. It is best to use vaccines as part of a total herd health program. Your veterinarian, who understands the local and current conditions, is an important advisor for any health program or vaccination schedule you plan to implement.
