A sound preconditioning program helps ensure the health of weaned calves. Preconditioning includes vaccinating and other health care procedures, weaning and introducing dry feed. It is designed to prepare calves for arrival at a feedlot in a manner that significantly reduces sickness and death loss. Preconditioning ensures to buyers that calves have been properly handled, and can lead to premium sale prices.
Need help with preconditioning records? Ask about our Preconditioning Certification forms, which are free to you upon request with your vaccine purchase. The forms allow you to document health care for buyers, including dates of blackleg vaccination, respiratory vaccination, deworming, external parasite control and other data. Two-part forms include record for buyer and a duplicate copy for your own records. Lori H
