  • Achieving good weight for age is the priority

  • Temperature fluctuations can increase the risk of pneumonia and protecting against the key respiratory viruses is key

  • Affected calves stopped growing for 4-6 weeks

  • Surveillance on more than 2,500 samples from calves submitted by vets for analysis found 83% positive for Pi3v, and 76% for BRSv

  • Calves now receive a single dose of Rispoval IntraNasal
