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.
