A Salmonella Summer

By Dr. Amber Hazel

On the dairy and calf ranch, this is the time of year where we see an uptick in Salmonella cases, primarily in calves that are comingled coming from dairies and end up at the calf ranch. Salmonella dublin is like other Salmonella strains – they are fecal oral and capitalize on fecal shedding into the environment from carriers in the cow herd. Unfortunately, these carriers heavily shed right when both mom and calf are most susceptible – when mom has just calved and immunosuppressed. This means that if you have a history of Salmonella on the dairy, it’s most likely to be shed into your calving pen or fresh pen. It can also commonly be found as a contaminant of colostrum. This propagates the disease onto the calf who carries it into the young calf pen on the dairy or into the calf ranch. Salmonella dublin is unique to calves in that it can cause very severe disease, high fevers, and depression greater than other strains.  Read More

CALF EQUIPMENT CLEANING & DISINFECTION

By Dr. Amber Hazel

Indeed, there is more than one way to skin a cat. With calf equipment, most producers think that there are a billion different ways to clean your calf bottles, nipples, esophageal feeders and the like. In my farm visits, variations of on farm cleaning protocols are as numerous as the calves in the barn. However, I would say that for cleaning, there is research that says there isn’t very many different ways to do it to actually get consistently clean equipment every time.  Read More
