Bacterial pathogens of the bovine respiratory disease complex.
Pneumonia caused by the bacterial pathogens discussed in this article is the most significant cause of morbidity and mortality of the BRDC. Most of these infectious bacteria are not capable ofExpand
Escherichia coli O157 in feedlot cattle feces and water in four major feeder-cattle states in the USA.
The prevalence of Escherichia coli O157 was determined in 10662 fecal samples, 2130 water and 1132 water tank-sediment samples collected during the summer months in 2001 from 711 pens in 73 feedlotsExpand

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.Expand
Bovine dehorning: assessing pain and providing analgesic management.
Dehorning or disbudding in cattle is performed for a variety of reasons using various methods. Pain associated with this procedure has been mostly evaluated through behavioral, physiologic, andExpand
Prevalence of Escherichia coli O157 in Cattle Feeds in Midwestern Feedlots
ABSTRACT Comparisons of enrichment methods (with or without antibiotics and with or without a preenrichment step) using gram-negative (GN) broth or tryptic soy broth (TSB) were conducted with feedsExpand

Despite technological, biologic, and pharmacologic advances the bacterial component of the bovine respiratory disease (BRD) complex continues to have a major adverse effect on the health andExpand
Lameness in feedlot cattle.
This article examines the various causes of lameness in feedlot cattle, with an emphasis on clinical signs, treatment, and prevention. Specific conditions are discussed, including interdigitalExpand
Associations between management, climate, and Escherichia coli O157 in the faeces of feedlot cattle in the Midwestern USA.
Our objective was to generate hypotheses for potential on-farm control strategies for Escherichia coli O157 by identifying associations between management practices and climate, and the presence ofExpand
Haptoglobin response to clinical respiratory tract disease in feedlot cattle.
OBJECTIVE To quantify haptoglobin response to respiratory tract disease in feedlot cattle, and to investigate its ability to predict disease outcome and response to antibiotic treatment. DESIGNExpand
Factors associated with the presence of Escherichia coli O157 in feedlot-cattle water and feed in the Midwestern USA.
Our objective was to generate hypotheses about associations between management, climate, and the presence of Escherichia coli O157 in feedlot-cattle water tanks and in feedlot-cattle feed. WaterExpand
