Fact Sheet: What causes diarrhea in calves?

With calving season in full swing for many beef producers, the issue of calf scours may arise. Understanding the causes of this disease can help with our preventative efforts.

This fact sheet, created through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, provides valuable information on why a calf may be susceptible to scours, and the differences in major pathogens that cause diarrhea in calves.

Source: Canadian Agricultural Partnership, Results Driven Agriculture Research, Government of Canada, Alberta Milk, Province of Alberta, AVL/Solvet, and Chinook Contract Research.

Further resources:

Learn more about preventing calf scours on this episode of The Beef Cattle Health and Nutrition Podcast, hosted by Dr. John Campbell.

For more information on emergency support for young calves, visit the Beef Cattle Research Council’s library of Calf 911 videos.

Both of these resources were funded in part by Alberta Beef Producers.
