Cattle Health Issues

Farmers and ranchers cannot profit if their cattle are sick. Unhealthy cattle cost farmers millions of dollars each year. Unfortunately, in many instances cattle become sick at no fault of the farmers. Investigations can often reveal the cattle became sick or contaminated because of bad feed, defective vaccines and other acts of negligence. If your cattle became ill and you are unsure as to why, Domina Law Group can investigate. Listed below are some of the most common causes of cattle illness.

This is a condition particularly found in cattle with imbalanced lactic acid in their stomachs. Healthy cows will produce just as much lactic acid as they use. This keeps the acid in balance. In the case of acidosis, there is a buildup of acid. Typically the cause is poor nutrition and even contaminated feed. Your cattle may have acidosis if they appear lethargic, have diarrhea, are salivating or otherwise look uncomfortable or aggravated.

This stands for Bovine Viral Diarrhea virus and it significantly impacts the growth of cattle. The growth rate of cows with BVD compared to healthy cows is much lower. This disease often can go undetected, which is astounding considering the fact that around 80 percent of all cattle in the U.S. have been exposed to this condition. Experts estimate this condition causes farmers and ranchers around $2 billion annually.

Bad Vaccines
Sadly enough, the vaccines farmers believe will immunize their cattle to certain diseases in some cases actually causes more harm than good. Bad vaccines can spread costly diseases to cattle which can make them sickly or even kill them.

Poor Nutrition
Cattle feeders typically feed livestock corn and other grain mixtures, but feed with mycotoxins, aflatoins or zearalanone in it can be deadly to cattle. Bad feed can kill profits for a farmer. Our firm suggests farmers only purchase feed by way of written contracts. These contracts can financially protect farmers if they purchase bad feed that harms their cattle.

This condition is a type of a cattle breast infection. When utters become inflamed, it is because bacteria has infected them. This is one of the most common cattle diseases in the United States. Although it is more common for mastitis to infect dairy cattle, it can infect beef cattle as well. This can decrease fertility and hurt reproduction.

Stray Voltage
Damaged grounding devices or improper wiring can lead to stray voltage cattle issues. Many ranches have electrical fences installed by outside contractors. Power companies may be responsible for improperly-wired voltage if it harmed your cattle.
