Abstract

The data presented consistently demonstrated the cost of BRD from weaning to the packers to be approximately 7% of the total production cost when compared to animals with health respiratory tracts. As a clinician it is distressing to feel that we cannot accurately identify all the animals that require treatment. Greater emphasis must be placed on prevention of BRD.
