DCHA Webinar: Economic Cost of Respiratory Disease in Dairy Replacement HeifersName: DCHA Webinar: Economic Cost of Respiratory Disease in Dairy Replacement HeifersDate: May 21, 2020Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDTRegistration: Sorry, public registration for this event has been closed.Event Description:
Having a heifer calf with bovine respiratory disease (BRD) can be costly. But just how costly? Kevin Dhuyvetter, Ph.D., Elanco cattle technical consultant, will break down the numbers and discuss the impact that not addressing the disease head-on could have on your farm during this webinar.
Dr. Dhuyvetter will dive into the short-term cost effects of BRD on replacement dairy heifers as well as the long-term effects on growth and milk production. New data will be shared pertaining to BRD incidence and how this impacts the cost of raising heifers with the intent to help producers make ROI-driven decisions for the years ahead if BRD is present within the herd.
“Our goal is to help producers better manage their replacement calves,” says Dr. Dhuyvetter. “Quantifying the effects of a disease will help heifer raisers make informed decisions to build the most productive dairies.” Register to learn more.
The American Association of Veterinary State Boards granted one Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) credit for this DCHA webinar. This provides veterinarians with a convenient continuing education opportunity.
This webinar is sponsored by NUPLURA® PH, the Mannheimia haemolytica vaccine from Elanco with the fastest onset of immunity. Its strong protection is ideal for cattle experiencing periods of elevated stress. The technology used to create NUPLURA® PH reduces the level of endotoxin and provides a unique combination of outer membrane protein and recombinant leukotoxoid for a targeted immune response. Join the webinar to get a first look at the results from a new NUPLURA® PH milk yield study.
