Three New ISU Extension Beef-Health Publications Available

AMES, Iowa — Three new beef-health publications are now available through the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach online store. Grant Dewell, extension beef veterinarian, authored the publications and said each addresses a specific concern.

“The one on vitamin A deficiency in beef calves is perhaps the most timely because of the upcoming calving season, but the others also offer current and valuable information for beef operations,” Dewell said. “The other two publications on ergot poisoning and trichomoniasis provide details on recognizing specific signs and symptoms of those concerns.”

All three new publications are two pages in length in pdf format and can be downloaded at no cost:

Producers with additional questions about these or any beef health issues are encouraged to contact their Iowa State University Extension and Outreach beef program specialist or their veterinarian for more information.
