Downland Calf Scour Range

Calf Scour is a frustratingly common disease experienced on the majority of cattle farms in the UK. The modern dairy farmer and beef suckler producer simply can’t afford the youngstock losses and growth setbacks caused by calf scour. Therefore, it is vital every
practical step is taken to give calves the best start in life and minimizing the potential impact of scour. Viruses and bacteria are major causes of infectious calf scours. The single biggest cause is rotavirus, but other viruses such as coronavirus, cryptosporidia
(a protozoan organism) and the bacteria E.coli K99 also cause problems. A number of these pathogens – particularly rotavirus and cryptosporidia – are present on most farms and often all they require is a trigger factor (eg. stress) to cause disease.
