Herd health is definitely one area that receives a lot of attention. Here at LaGrand we have developed a strong nucleus herd, which has resulted from purchasing top females and embryos throughout the United States.
Strict vaccination protocols and serologic profiling are completed upon arrival and routinely there after to prevent disease. Annual serology examinations are performed for Johne's disease and bovine leukosis virus (BLV). We use Vira Shield® for protection against IBR, Type 1 and Type 2 BVD, BRSV, PI3, Vibrio and five strains of Lepto. We also use other combinations of Clostridium.
