Hi guys! Today’s topic is vaccinating replacement heifers. (Replacement heifers are, our one year old’s who will start having calves next year).
We gave each calf two shots. One was called Redwater and the other was Vista 3 vl5sq. Both are Given Subcutaneously. Subcutaneous is a way of giving a shot. It’s just a fancy way of saying that the shot will be given under the skin. Two other ways of giving a shot are Intramuscular (which is straight into the muscle) and IV or Intravenous ( which is into the blood stream). T and I gave the shots.
Another thing that was given to the heifers is a pour on called Ivermectin. You just pour it on their back and it will soak in. Ivermectin kills internal parasites, lice, mites and horn flies. Jacelyn had this job.
Here’s some pics!

Colton and Deacon where in the back keeping cows coming in. But I didn’t get any photos. 😦
And, that’s all! Thanks for taking a look!
