Autumn animal health with Ginny Dodunski. Part 2: Cattle

Ginny Dodunski is a Senior Vet with Totally Vets, Taumaranui.

In her first podcast she discussed issues for sheep flocks in autumn and early winter. This week in Part 2, she shares her advice on looking after cattle in autumn and winter, whether it be calves, drystock or pregnant cows and heifers.

Internal parasites are a hot topic again, Cooperia and Liver Fluke in particular. As well as the possibility of trace element deficiency, Ginny stresses the value of monitoring and testing to find the cause. As always, many animal health challenges start with nutrition and Ginny reinforces the need for Body Condition Scoring for cows too. Plus much more!
