Early fall can bring stress on beef cows and calves, whether it be from the weaning process, the change in the weather, or other factors. Kansas State University Beef Veterinarian A.J. Tarpoff says that anaplasmosis remains a leading health threat to cow herds, and it tends to show up at this time of the year.
Tarpoff says if a producer does see those outward indicators of anaplasmosis, a swift response is in order. Tarpoff says to work closely with your veterinarian in contending with these and other health ailments that commonly show up in the fall.
