 Calves should be de-wormed starting at 2 months of age then every two months to maximize
growth.
 In areas where liver flukes are prevalent use Ivomec Plus or Valbazen.
 Routine fecal exams by your veterinarian can determine if coccidiosis is a problem in your
animals. Fecal exams can also be used to evaluate the efficiency of your de-worming
program
 Lice are particularly a problem in this area during the winter months. Cylence pour-on or
Durasect can be used for control of this problem. Pour on wormers will control lice as well as
some internal parasites.
 Insecticide ear tags can be used during the spring and summer, but should be removed in the
fall.

NUTRITION
 Selenium and Copper supplementation should be done in this area. Mineral mix and
injectable & boluses are available. It is recommended that calves be given Bo-Se at birth.

Please consult your veterinarian to assist in setting up a herd health program to meet the
particular needs of your herd.
