Fall Deworming

Proper Fall Deworming Keeps Cattle Parasite-Free Over Winter

Cattle free from parasites will have better feed intake, average daily gain, milk production, as well as a positive immune response to vaccines and diseases.2,3 

Fall deworming can result in cattle being worm-free over the winter months in areas that have a hard frost. This means cattle will be able to better utilize nutrients. This is especially critical for cows in their second or third trimesters of pregnancy. Nutrients can more effectively go towards fetal development and keeping the cow in good body condition, which impacts her ability to raise a healthy calf and rebreed.2 

Deworming now sets the foundation for the cow herd’s performance in the spring. It also positively impacts weaned calf health and performance.2

3 Keys to Winter Supplementation

There are many factors to consider when choosing a supplement, such as quality of forage, body condition score (BCS), weather and level of production.

With colder temperatures, the cow herd has greater energy requirements and protein supplementation is an integral part of maintaining these gestating cows’ body condition scores and growing a healthy calf. Keep in mind these three considerations when choosing the best supplement for the cow herd.
