Study sheds light on immune function in calves
ImmuCell announces the availability of a new white paper on immune function of newborn calves and vaccination protocols.
This new white paper, titled “Does your vaccination protocol compromise newborn health?” was launched as part of a continued effort to answer questions related to calf health and immunity and to educate the dairy industry about immune function in calves.
Topics included in the white paper are colostrum quality, pre-calving vaccination programs, newborn calf vaccinations, and solutions to provide calves with immediate immunity at birth. The discussion centers on pitfalls in these programs that could be putting your calves at risk.
“Having a further understanding of how a calf’s immune system functions will help dairy producers better protect their calves and therefore their bottom line,” says Bobbi (Kunde) Brockmann, director of sales and marketing with ImmuCell Corporation. “We are committed to protecting calves and delivering technologies and insights that help producers protect the future herd.”
This white paper was peer reviewed by Dr. Sheila McGuirk, veterinary clinician at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Mark Cook, professor in Animal Sciences at the University of Wisconsin- Madison. Download the white paper at: http://bit.ly/ zdRfVd. — WLJ
