What's everybody hit there calves with that they buy at a sale barn. Just for the peace of mind aspect. 350-400 wt. weaned steers is what I bought this round. Had the guy hauling for me worm and castrate and he hit em with la200. They are doing great but I don't know and he didn't know if they had any other kind of vaccinations prior to weaning or when they pulled em off mom. Risky business?? Seems that way to me and when I go to buy my next set I want to be better prepared

Thanks!!!!!

Yes.
You are lucky they were weaned.
Inforce 3 and a 7 way at the minimum. Consider a pneumonia vaccine shot also.

Draxxin, covexin 8, virashield 6, inforce 3, multimin 90, cydectin injectable. This heat will sure bring out a lunger hence the draxxin and inforce.

I sure wouldn't give draxxin just for the heck of it to a healthy cow. I usually give my trader cows, Calvary 9, Cydectin injectable and a pour on wormer and MultiMin right off the trailer. Then in 3 weeks give a booster of Calvary 9 and Triangle 10 HB. My feeling is to much at one time could cause problems.

They can pick up shipping fever "Pneumonia"at the stockyards, and LA 200 just teases it..keep a close eye on em and if you notice one off, best pull and quarantine it...don't turn them out where you can't get em up easily..

That's good advice, we quarantine trader cows for at least 2 weeks. Some go right back the next week if their crazy.

Advertised as having their shots but nobody seems to know what that is. I just treat them like they have never seen a head chute before.

Everything I recommended except the vitamins was with the help of a very good vet here on CT.
Another very good recommendation is only using a clean needle in the bottles. Leave the needle in it and draw from it.

I don't give draxxin to cows I buy either. Cuts down on repulls and death loss on lightweight calves for me. That's why I would recommend it to someone starting out. Mass treatment protocol is an age old debate on stockers.

What do you gain with both virashield and inforce?

Injectable wormer , respiratory of your choice, quarantine . And if you're going to make money , implant . Long weaned (45 days ) and documented vaccinated calves bring a premium here , and they should . Some kind of fly protocol this time of year would be advisable also .
