Signs and Symptoms

Bovine respiratory disease can result in a number of symptoms, but most of these are non-specific and so it is not usually possible to identify the cause of the outbreak from symptoms alone. Cattle with respiratory disease often have a poor general appearance and perform less well.

Common signs include:

  • In the early stages, depression and reduced appetite (off-feed)
  • Breathing difficulty – rapid or deep chest movements, with or without open mouth breathing
  • Coughing
  • Raised temperature (>39.6°C )
  • Nose and eye discharge
  • Death
