II. RESPIRATORY DISEASES A) IBR (Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheitis) (Rednose): A viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. It is present in almost all herds, but causes illness in unexposed animals or those with lowered levels of immunity. Many cattle carry the virus and shed it to others during periods of stress. Bent leg is a disease due to malfunction of bone metabolism. Affects the lambs of age between 6 and 12 months. Prevention and Treatment: Balanced feed, avoid high protein food, increase feed rich calcium and phosphorous, and the house should have good exposure to the sun in winter. Bloat: Bloat affected due to excess gas elimination.
Bovine respiratory disease (BRD) is the most common and costly disease affecting beef cattle in the world. It is a complex, bacterial infection that causes pneumonia in calves which can be fatal. The infection is usually a sum of three codependent factors: stress, an underlying viral infection, and a new bacterial infection. The diagnosis of the disease is complex since there are multiple. Heat stress. Inseminating cows too late in relation to ovulation. Deficient crude protein or excess degradable protein intake. Gross over-conditioning. Diseases. Subclinical uterine infection. Vibriosis and trichomoniasis in natural breeding. Leptospirosis and haemophilus. Viruses (IBR/IPV, BVD) and maybe others. Ureaplasma and mycoplasma.
The detrimental effects caused by stressors encountered by animals during routine handling can pose economic problems for the livestock industry due to increased costs ultimately borne by the producer and the consumer. Stress adversely affects key physiological processes of the reproductive and immune systems. In recent years stress responsiveness has been associated with cattle Cited by: An understanding of animal psychology combined with well designed facilities will reduce stress on both you and your cattle. Reducing stress is important because stress reduces the ability to fight disease and weight gain. The principles discussed in this book apply to all types of grazing animals. Stress increases weight loss, damages rumen function, and can interfere with Cited by: 4.

The important stress-related diseases Diseases typically associated with stress are pasteurellosis, Mannheimia haemolytica, and coccidiosis.
Most of these pathogens are opportunistic organisms that occur naturally in livestock, but kept under control by. The book contains 18 chapters: Bovine Tuberculosis: Diagnosis, Prevention and Control Antimicrobial Sensitivity Assay and Antimicrobial Chemotherapy in Animals:.
Stress and exertion will often cause infected animals to go down or die suddenly. Hardware Disease. Foreign objects that cattle may ingest (wire, nails, pins, screws, bolts, or glass) collect in the reticulum. she writes articles, and books, and edits videos to help others turn their livestock into landscape managers.

For example, psychological stress is associated with greater risk for depression, heart disease and infectious diseases.
About the Author. Heather Smith Thomas has written extensively on animal health care, authoring thousands of articles and 24 books on the subject. Her books include Storey’s Guide to Raising Beef Cattle, Essential Guide to Calving, Getting Started with Beef & Dairy Cattle, The Cattle Health Handbook, The Horse Conformation Handbook, Cited by: 3.
Events that precipitate stress (called stressors) elicit any of a number of coping mechanisms or adaptive changes, including behavioral reactions, activation of the sympathetic nervous system and adrenal medulla, secretion of stress hormones (e.g., glucocorticoids and prolactin), and mobilization of the immune system.
Disease is the major factor which prohibits full utilization of these regions for cattle production. Various infectious and transmissible viral, rick ettsial, bacterial, and particularly protozoan and helminthic diseases, are widespread in the tropics and exert a heavy toll on the existing cattle.
Cattle Disease Guide. This comprehensive disease guide provides information on diseases that can affect individual animals or an entire herd. Typical symptoms associated with the disease will help identify the problem, advice for treatment and measures to prevent disease is also available.
Treatments available will vary depending on individual. It is no surprise then that a tense muscle caused by cattle stress will result in tough meat. Short-term vs. Long-Term Cattle Stress. When cattle stress is short-term, temporary changes in chemistry within the meat make the beef tough and causes it to lose flavor.
But if stress persists for an extended period of time, the changes are even worse. Scientists remain divided about this conclusion, but agree that stress can be a critical factor in irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, heartburn, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, which is characterized by chronic : Elizabeth Agnvall.
Stress - health and productivity. Stress in dairy cattle. Like humans, the chronic effects of stress from poor welfare levels can lead to adverse metabolic changes in the dairy cow and can have significant effects on their health and productivity. sporadically in cattle; this disease is more important as a cause of abortion in sheep.
These infections can occasionally pro-duce significant numbers of abortions in late pregnancy, particularly following in-clement weather or other patterns of stress. FUNGAL DISEASE Mycotic Abortion Abortions are typically sporadic, and oc-cur from 4 months File Size: 86KB.
Lighter colored cattle generally show less heat stress than darker colored breeds. Research has shown that in a group of genetically closely related cattle with different hide colors, cattle with dark hides had a 2° F higher core body temperature.
And, calmer cattle have been shown to be more heat tolerant than excitable ones. An imbalance between metabolic heat production inside the animal body and its dissipation to the surroundings results to heat stress (HS) under high air temperature and humid climates.
The foremost reaction of animals under thermal weather is increases in respiration rate, rectal temperature and heart by: Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your mind and body.
Take steps to control your stress. Your body is hard-wired to react to stress in ways meant to protect you against threats from predators and other aggressors. Such threats are rare today, but that doesn't mean that life is free of stress.
On the contrary, you undoubtedly face multiple. Enteric diseases have not been overlooked, with Ileitis ( refs) Swine Dysentery (86 refs) and even Colitis (58 refs). Other pig diseases and infections are broadly covered in the book and there is a useful Appendix (2) on reference laboratory values /5(8).
Cattle Fever Ticks Cattle Fever Ticks (Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) annulatus and R. (B.) microplus) (CFT) are important parasites of cattle due to their ability to vector Bovine babiesiosis and anaplasmosis. The cattle fever tick eradication program was started in and today CFT are somewhat confined to a permanent quarantine zone that runs from Brownsville .abortus prevent cattle from contacting the disease.
Infected cattle must be slaughtered. Distemper (Horses) – Contagious. Exposure to cold, wet weather, fatigue, and an infection of the respiratory tract aid in spreading the disease. Increased respiratory rate, depression, loss of appetite & discharge of pus from the nose are visible symptoms.
