Winning the Battle Against BRD:

For cattle producers, half the battle to keep cattle healthy is choosing the right vaccine to help prevent bovine respiratory disease (BRD). BRD is the leading cause of economic loss in the beef industry, with losses of up to $240 per head.1,2 Cattle that never develop BRD are more productive and less costly than those treated for the disease. For that reason, it pays to help prevent the most frequent causes of BRD with a complete vaccination program. There are many causes and complexities of BRD, but viral infections and stress typically are involved. Minimizing stress and the use of a vaccine that helps prevent common bovine respiratory pathogens, such as infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) virus, bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) Types 1 and 2 viruses, bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) and parainfluenza 3 (PI3) virus, are key to helping prevent BRD and its associated production losses and treatment costs.

Today, some of that focus seems to have faded, but veterinarians say that does not mean the battle against BVD control has been won. They remind cattle producers that it is still important to stay on top of BVDV and biosecurity methods to keep cattle at the farm or ranch and in the feedlot protected. David Smith, a professor and Extension dairy/beef veterinarian at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, explains that awareness of BVD was high a few years ago, which he attributes to the new testing capabilities — specifically ear notch tests — that allowed for easier detection of animals persistently infected with the BVD virus.
