My vet is designing me a little different vaccination program to assist with fetus calf, ect.

Nothing new cause all I had was 15 this year, still building. Will have 20 next year, but here are some new things that are happening this next year. Cows are getting moved from this location to a larger leased location. Also, this year I fed a cheap pasture mineral during the spring, summer, and early fall with fly control in it.. and then I give a good breeding mineral with lots of selenium during the fall with no fly control mixed in.. I THINK THIS IS WHERE PART OF MY PROBLEM WITH POSSIBLE SELENIUM STUFF WENT WRONG. .. Next year I am keeping them on the selenium one year round and not doing the added fly control drugs to see if that possibly was a cause. We'll see what happens I guess and keep treading on..

I read you are vaccinating with a killed vaccine. Did you take an ear sample to test for BVD by chance?

I hope you get ahead of this. Every one you lose hurts.

Vaccinations, cheaper than whiskey. ;-)
