We just bought 6 Deacon Calves. We bought them at Gaylord Livestock Auction last week. My question is what is the best vaccination program for them? When can and should they have what? I want to give them the best care possible. Right now they're taking medicated milk replacer and nibbling on a little bit of 18% calf starter. Also plenty of fresh water. Any help you can give would be appreciated!

No one vaccination program fits every farm. What we recommend from Extension is getting with a local veterinarian to develop this program. It is important to develop a good relationship with a local veterinarian, and many of the antibiotics that you may need to use also require that the producer have a valid "Veterinary/Client Relationship". If you wish to talk further about this, please call me at 231-533-8818, or email me directly at email@example.com.
