Using CattleMaster Gold by Zoetis

Aug 30, 2021


Don’t let infectious diseases weaken your cattle’s reproductive efficiency. Infectious viral reproductive diseases can result in abortions, embryonic death, stillbirths, weak calves, and reduced pregnancy rates in beef cattle. These can add up to significant economic losses. Bacterial diseases caused by Leptospira spp. and Campylobacter fetus (Vibrio) can dramatically reduce a herd’s calving rate due to pregnancy loss and reproductive inefficiency.
To help guard cattle from the most common reproductive viral pathogens, try CATTLEMASTER GOLD FP® 5.  This vaccine combines Inactivated BVD virus Types 1 and 2 that helps provide Fetal Protection against BVD persistent infections and has demonstrated safe and proprietary temperature-sensitive IBR (tsIBR) virus to help provide Fetal Protection against IBR abortions.
In addition, CATTLEMASTER GOLD FP® 5 can be administered to cows and heifers with unknown vaccination histories.
Choose a vaccine that helps provide an unmatched combination of safety and Fetal Protection. CATTLEMASTER GOLD® FP 5 is the only inactivated BVD vaccine to offer Fetal Protection against IBR abortion and BVD Types 1 and 2 persistent infections, something ViraShield® and Triangle® do not provide. It not only gives you peace of mind, but also pays off with healthier, profitable calves on sale day.
When used according to label directions, Zoetis CATTLEMASTER GOLD® FP line of vaccines are backed with a Fetal Protection Guarantee:
• 100 percent of calves are born free from BVD persistent infections
• Cows and fetuses are protected against IBR abortion

Ensiled forages protect nutrient loss from harvest through storage, are relatively easy to feed, and can increase proficiency of ration mixing and handling versus dry forage. Feeding environment and convenience influence dairy cattle response to rations and forage concentration. These lactational and feed intake responses to a given forage will be influenced not only by fiber concentration and digestibility but also physical form.

Fly control is a constant struggle for horse and farm owners. Flying insects, including flies, are not just annoyances; they can serve as vectors to spread infectious diseases among animals. Effectively controlling flies requires a combination of products and techniques to manage the fly population from multiple angles.

The first step in deciding what feed or feed type is best for your cattle is to verify which nutrients are limiting or preventing the utilization of forage energy. Grazing cattle make their choice of diet by selectively grazing the pasture they are housed on, which can be of unknown nutrient composition. It is well established that cattle have nutrient requirements that vary with weight, production level, environmental condition, and genetics. It is relatively easy to determine these nutrient requirements for a specific beef animal — as well as the makeup of the forages used to model feedstuffs that provide important components not found in the basal forage diet.
