Unpredictable Spring Weather Causes Spike in Blackleg Disease

Springtime signals the arrival of new calves, green grass and new growth. But with any new season, it can also indicate the arrival of unpredictable weather patterns, including rain, drought and blizzards. Unpredictable weather presents plenty of challenges to cattle producers, including an increased risk of clostridial diseases such as blackleg and enterotoxemia, or over-eating disease, in calves and young stock.

Clostridial diseases are highly pathogenic and can affect all ages of cattle. “Typically, when blackleg is discovered in the herd, it’s because the animal has been found dead,” said Dr. Travis Van Anne, Professional Services Veterinarian at Boehringer Ingelheim. The progression of blackleg disease happens within 24 hours and treatment regimens are often of very little value, so prevention is the best bet for protection.

“Using a quality vaccine such as a one-dose, seven-way clostridial vaccine at birth or at branding time is ideal to protect your herd,” said Dr. Van Anne.

Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.
