What is Making my Calves Dirty?

Calves born in the spring will now be grazing hard enough to take in worm larvae. Visual symptoms of gastrointestinal worm infection include dirty back-ends (and condition loss in large-burden scenarios). Use FECs and weighing to determine whether or not treatment is necessary. With lungworm, coughing animals is the principle symptom of infection and action should be taken quickly when this occurs.
