Dairy Cattle Diseases

Duration: 1+ hours

Viral and bacterial-based diseases of beef cattle are a common but important problem. Both of these organisms are smaller than the human eye can see yet can cause devastating disease among herds. Usually, the organism is carried by another agent such as ticks, midges, bodily fluids, bedding or food. In this course, you'll learn how to manage the wellbeing of a dairy cow, including consideration of its health and vigour, to optimise quality and quantity of production. Includes a useful table with symptoms and material on how to recognise common issues and diseases.
